We can assist with, or fully manage, projects as needed, from bespoke salt selection and polymorphism screening services through to full formulation screening and development programs.

Company History

Pharmaterials - pharmaceutical contract research laboratory

Pharmaterials was founded in January 2000 by Professor Graham Buckton as a spin-out company from the London School of Pharmacy, UK. Since inception, the company grew through an organic business model and in 2005, due to a period of sustained business growth moved to state-of-the-art laboratories and offices in Reading, UK. The company offers services spanning many aspects of drug development with the commitment to exceptional service reflected in our high rate of return business.
