Catalent Showcases Advanced Formulations, Development Technologies And Drug Delivery Solutions At CPhI Worldwide

Somerset, N.J. – September 27, 2016 — Catalent Pharma Solutions (Booth 3J16), the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products, today announced a full agenda for the upcoming CPhI Worldwide Conference and Exhibition, to be held at the Fira de Barcelona, Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain, during Oct. 3 – 6, 2016.

At the conference, Catalent will showcase several of its advanced development and drug delivery solutions, including its award-winning OptiForm ® Solution Suite platform, which combines both predictive and high-throughput screening technologies to identify the most stable and efficient drug form for small molecules, and applies rigorous scientific principles and known industry models to evaluate, in parallel, multiple delivery options for these molecules. Earlier this year, Catalent extended the scope of the solution to include macromolecules with its OptiForm ® Solution Suite Bio platform, incorporating two formulation technologies that address oral delivery challenges for macromolecules. Using the OptiForm ® Solution Suite and OptiForm ® Solution Suite Bio platforms, preclinical pharmacokinetic study material for small molecules can be presented within twelve weeks, and in vivo study material for macromolecules can be available within three weeks

The combined OptiForm ® Solution Suite and OptiForm ® Solution Suite Bio platforms have been shortlisted in the CPhI Pharma Awards for the “Contract Services and Outsourcing” category, with the winners announced at a Gala Dinner on Tuesday, Oct. 4.

Catalent executives will be available throughout the show to discuss the company’s full range of capabilities, including its new spray drying technology, added as a result of Catalent’s acquisition of Pharmatek Laboratories announced earlier in September 2016, and its FastChain™ service, for greater speed, flexibility and efficiency in the management of global clinical supplies.
