Exactly how pharmaceutical companies develop new products can be something of a mystery. So we'd like to throw some light on the R&D process that we use.

     1. Formulation                 2. Pre-clinical               3. Clinical Trials           4. Registration

Stage two is the pre-clinical phase. The point of this stage is to ensure that the product is safe to test in the clinical phase.

We prefer to test product safety on cells rather than animals (in-vitro testing). We strongly believe in, and practice, the ‘3R’ system for humane research: replacement, reduction, and refinement.
