Botulinum toxin testing is one of the many laboratory services TGA Sciences provides to the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Academic communities.
Botulinum toxin studies are designed to investigate the potency of biologically active molecules in vivo generally testing our clients’ proprietary formulation technology. These types of experiments can aid our clients’ approaches to improvements in the formulation of particular active agents in their therapeutics. In order to refine and optimize the formulations for the next stage of product development (critical excipient ratios, active agent formulation stability over time, excipient compatibility and other important factors that potentially will affect the performance of the product) are to be investigated. Using study designs that test the skin reaction, muscular dexterity, gait analysis, DAS scoring, etc., product profiles can be generated to assist our clients’ progression through product development.
