Analytical + Quality Control

State-of-the-Art Laboratories Supporting You from Early Development Through cGMP

Serán maintains two well-equipped analytical facilities: a formulation development laboratory and a cGMP Quality Control laboratory.


In our formulation development lab, we deploy a variety of techniques to assess the physical and chemical properties of drug substances and prototype formulations. Careful collection and evaluation of the right data enables rational scientific choices leading to optimized formulations, even in Phase 1.

Our development lab can also has the capability to develop new analytical methods for your compound. All methods are qualified or validated to ensure accuracy and consistency.


Our QC lab ensures that raw materials used in cGMP manufacturing, as well as intermediates and dosage forms manufactured at Serán, meet applicable quality standards. The QC lab also performs chemical and physical stability assessments of intermediates and drug product, environmental monitoring testing of our manufacturing suites, and swab cleaning verification of our equipment after manufacture.
