Early Development

Integrated approach of drug development

Preclinical drug development is a complex, regulatory and strategy-driven process. The most important element of the preclinical process is to select the best new molecular entities to enter into the clinical trials and to limit failure in full development.  With its countless years of professional experience in drug development Eurofins is well positioned to offer a holistic approach of the compound development in order to maximize the chances of success in the clinical phases.

Our network of expertise and full service is not only a matter of convenience but also an issue of confidence and security to succeed with your project. Our clients select Eurofins for this distinctive match of expertise, flexibility and full service. This beneficial setting explains why we work for 8 out of the 10 biggest Pharma companies.

Our teams of Eurofins ADME Bioanalyses and Eurofins Optimed in France and Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing Munich in Germany will be happy to support you with your individual projects. 

Early Development

Because lead selection is the first step for your developmentā€¦

Eurofins ADME BIOANALYSES developed a screening test, to help you with the selection of a lead or to add value to your compounds towards your investors. This test will give you an earlier and more significant indicator of bioavailability than in vitro studies. Indeed, 40% of the molecules are stopped in development phase due to an insufficient level of bioavailability.

Our objective is to give you pharmacokinetic indications within one month and at a low cost. Based on the same protocol, we can also investigate the blood brain barrier permeability.

Preclinical activities encompass toxicology, pharmacology, metabolism, pharmaceutical analysis and biosafety testing. Our preclinical expertise in these areas is recognized in the pharmaceutical industry.
