The University of Iowa

UI Pharmaceuticals has been Performing Preformulation Studies and Developing Formulations for Almost 45 years

University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals has extensive experience with preformulation studies and formulation development for most major pharmaceutical dosage forms. Let us help you scientifically formulate your new product.

Examples of pharmaceutical formulation development projects performed by UIP include:

  • Standard immediate release solid oral dosage forms
  • Sterile solutions and lyophilized powders
  • Oral solutions and suspensions
  • Topical creams, gels, and ointments
  • Sustained release tablets produced using coating technology or hydrophilic matrixes
  • Enteric coated tablets and capsules
  • Hot-melt filled capsules

Capsules samples being prepared for analysis.

The first step of many of our projects is formulation development. Once the development of an acceptable formulation is accomplished and test batches of finished dosage forms produced, UIP has the capability to develop and validate analytical methods to perform analytical testing on the finished dosage forms. This assures their quality and stability, and allows the production of clinical supplies.

UIP also has the capability to begin range-finding studies as a starting point for subsequent process and formulation validation studies.
