Finding the right partner with the compliance, analytical resources and communication we need, is no easy feat - Gifford Marzoni, Vice-President Global API Development

Advantar Labs will partner with DavosPharma to provide U.S. based biotech and pharmaceutical clientele with comprehensive development, consultancy and program management support for pre-clinical and clinical trial materials as well as approved drugs and devices. Collaborative offerings include, but are not limited to Custom Synthesis for API’s and advanced Intermediates, Formulation Development, cGMP Drug Manufacturing, Investigational and Compatibility Studies, Method Development and Validation projects, Stability Studies and Regulatory support.

Rich Kenley, Ph.D. – CEO of Advantar Labs said “the alliance with DavosPharma enables our mutual clients to rapidly and confidently place their program with dedicated teams of experts to manage.” “For time critical studies, we are able to utilize DavosPharma’s infrastructure and broad network to provide more options and overall guidance to customers for their development needs than previously before. This accomplishment puts our lab well ahead of many competing CRO’s with in-house project management, because they often lack specific area expertise or comprehensive tracking tools.”

Giff Marzoni, Ph.D. – VP of Global API Development at DavosPharma said “the Advantar team has a tremendous breadth of analytical and formulation development experience that we leverage for our customers. Finding the right partner with the compliance, analytical resources and communication we need, is no easy feat. However, Rich and his team simply make it very easy to work with and get the job done right. They share our corporate vision in providing great science and exceptional support for every program awarded.”
