June 12, 2009 - PRLog -- Tampa, FL – API into Capsule projects are on average completed 45 percent faster than traditional formulation efforts, and in some specific cases we have saved our clients as much as 17 weeks.

“Today’s molecule is under pressure” says Derek Hennecke, CEO and President.  “We need to work smarter with clients to make the best choices, often with limited material.  One of the best decisions we made was to put our money on Xcelodose ® (http://www.xcelience.com/xcelodose/default.aspx).  We were the first CRO in North America to do so, we’ve built up industry leading expertise, and this month we are proud to announce our 100th GMP batch.

"Our defined API into Capsule program is a true differentiator, but not the only one” adds V.P. Randall H. Guthrie, “Xcelience combines decades of drug development experience, state-of-the-art equipment, a strong audit history, and sound financial management to deliver solutions that enable our clients to rely on us to accelerate drug development programs and meet critical milestones.”

Xcelience is also announcing a strategic expansion focused on areas of proven strength:  low weight fills and potent compounds for API into capsule, continued expansion and growth of its formulation development team, implementation of UPLC analytical capability, investment in x-ray diffraction for preformulation activities, and blister packaging in support of client’s clinical supply needs.   Development of the purpose-built Grace Street expansion continues as planned.
