Core Competencies

Interdisciplinary needs

Inter-disciplinary needs.

Understanding inter-disciplinary needs is at the very heart of our Pharma Services. Specialized in dissolution testing, our experts are familiar with the various challenges associated with governing norms & regulations, different analytical methods to analyze samples, developing a robust method, differently automated instrumentation, API characterization, routine testing, stability testing, and more. With results being affected by API properties, formulation composition, manufacturing process or predicting biopharmaceutical performance, it requires a strong understanding of these various fields to utilize its complete potential.


Empower your Dissolution.

Empower your Dissolution.

Dissolution has gained significance because of its importance as a Critical Quality Attribute (CQA), a major surrogate for pharmacokinetic performance and bioavailability. It is used throughout the product lifecycle, from discovery of the active molecules and their selection until marketing of the drug product and post-approval monitoring.

An understanding of the mechanisms of dissolution constitutes a prerequisite for proper Quality by Design product development.

Our know-how about both pharmaceutical dosage forms and release testing techniques enable SOTAX Pharma Services to offer customized development strategies to fulfill the requirements of its clients, making sure that the developed method fits the intended purpose: formulation screening, IVIVC, or Quality Control.
