High-Throughput Formulation Screening Service for Topical and Transdermal Drug Development

Chicago, IL, U.S.A, July 26, 2010 – Zyleris PharmaTech (www.Zyleris.com) has announced today the launch of its high-throughput formulation screening service for topical and transdermal drug development based on the company’s innovative experimentation technology.

Zyleris’ technology is designed to transform topical and transdermal drug development.  The technology utilizes Franz Cell principle in a high-throughput fashion, which is at least 20x faster than present industrial standard Franz Cell technology and lowering costs up to 90% per formulation.  It also offers higher detection sensitivity than Franz Cell technology due to its unique design.  The main technical features include easy-to-use compact design, flexible diffusion area suitable for percutaneous absorption and permeation studies, all glass and Teflon construction, and an easy sample collection mechanism.

“Many researchers tell us that identifying suitable topical and transdermal formulations for clinical development is often quite tedious and expensive.  Due to the limitations of current Franz Cell technology, such as low speed and high cost, only a limited number of candidate formulations can reasonably be screened and evaluated.  Researchers always wonder: is the formulation slated for clinical development really best possible one to move forward?  Thus, the market is ripe for a high speed and yet cost efficient solution.  Our technology fills this gap by offering the best of both worlds – speed associated with high-throughput technology and yet result compatibility with industrial standard Franz Cell technology.  We understood that from the beginning and developed a truly innovative solution for this challenge and brought speed and cost efficiency to the process.” says Zyleris founder and CEO, Jerry Zhang, PhD.

Zyleris’ objective is to continue developing innovative solutions, technologies, and services for topical and transdermal drug research and development.
