BIO 2015 is in full swing and the Tergus stand in the NC Bio pavilions (booth #4235) is hopping. Vijendra Nalamothu, CEO and co-founder of Tergus is doing two on-stage presentations tomorrow.

  • QbD—the Advantage of Using QbD with Topical Pharmaceuticals, Wednesday, June 17th, 11:00 – 11:30 a.m. Tergus has a fully-implemented QbD program and has led the industry in using Quality by Design with topical pharmaceuticals. Dr. Nalamothu will discuss lessons learned and the advantages Tergus has seen with QbD.
  • The Duncan Hines Cake Mix Paradigm—Special Considerations for Topical Formulations, Wednesday, June 17th, 11:30 – Noon. Topical pharmaceutical formulation and development has been compared to Duncan Hines cake mixes—in the hands of different cooks, the results can be completely different. Topical pharmaceutical formulation carries with it a number of special considerations to create successful end results. Dr. Nalamothu will discuss how to overcome the Duncan Hines paradigm.

We ran across an interesting article in the daily show publication on selecting the right outsourcing partner. The author, Dr. Susanne Resatz, gives four main things that companies should look for when choosing an outsourced development or manufacturing partner: Experience, Creativity and Flexibility, Meeting International Quality Standards, Financial Stability and a Shared Vision. She also states that having a strong knowledge of regulations, a good working relationship with regulators and a well-trained team are also important.

At Tergus, we work very hard to become, in essence, an extension of our clients’ labs. We know how important the projects we undertake are to our clients and we share the passion that they have.

If you are at BIO, we invite you to stop by the NC Pavilion (Booth #4235) and say hello!
