Following client feedback, the team will use the latest in-house technologies to perform physico-chemical stability testing with a view to ensuring that the safety and physical integrity of the product is maintained throughout its development cycle. Once these stages have been completed, the business will further assist with the transition into the manufacturing processes if needed, including a recommendation for a manufacturer to suit a client’s minimum batch size.
The judges, who praised both CEO Henry Brew’s and Director of Regulatory Compliance Vinetta Brew’s commitment to upholding the business’s core values, commented that: “The pair work incredibly hard to ensure the products they help develop bring value to their respective markets, while opening up opportunities for innovation. Through their extensive range of services they help lower barriers that many clients face when trying to get their products to market, and maintain an openness to working on unique or complex projects.”
A delighted Dr Henry Brew and Vinetta Brew said: “We humbly accept this award with much gratitude. To be recognised nationwide for our work means a great deal to us. It was totally unexpected and makes our 10-year anniversary milestone just that little bit more special.”
