Upperton is a contract R&D company providing spray drying and formulation services to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.
Our services include:
- Development of spray dried dispersions for the solubilisation of poorly soluble drugs
- Spray drying and formulation of heat sensitive biomaterials
- Particle engineering for pulmonary and nasal drug delivery
- Seamless scale-up from early feasibility studies to cGMP manufacture
Established in 1999, the company has extensive experience in the spray drying of a wide range of pharmaceutical and biotechnology products. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and our ability to deliver projects in a propitious manner. Short feasibility studies can often be turned around within seven days, from the receipt of a client’s test compound to the return of processed samples, alongside associated technical data.
In addition to its spray drying capabilities, Upperton can also offer a wide range of associated analytical techniques. These include laser particle size analysis (dry powder and liquid suspension), bulk and tap density measurements, aerodynamic particle size analysis (Andersen cascade impactor), scanning electron microscopy, Xray diffraction, HPLC, nanosizing (DLS) and electrophoretic techniques.
