Analytical Method Development & Validation Expertise

At SCYNEXIS, we believe a key differentiator of our Process Chemistry Team is our expert Analytical Chemistry support group. Today’s pharmaceutical environment demands rugged, sensitive and specific analytical methods to support FDA regulatory filings. SCYNEXIS has demonstrated success in developing and validating analytical methods for API’s intended for Phase I clinical trials through NDA submission. We understand the API development industry and continually strive to meet our clients’ most critical deadlines. Our Analytical Chemistry Team leadership consists of tenured veterans from companies including AAI, Catalent, Merck, and GSK.

Phase-Appropriate GMP Validations

At SCYNEXIS, we focus on delivering phase-appropriate method validations in a timely and cost-effective manner. We work in close partnership with our clients to identify the level of analysis and validation required by FDA and ICH guidelines. All validation packages are reviewed by our Quality Assurance Department and in 2009, our GMP systems were audited by the FDA as part of a General Inspection and Pre-Approval Inspection (PAI). No 483’s were issued.
