Topical Product Development

As part of our turnkey CRO solution, Symbio expanded its topical formulation division in 2012 by creating Dow Development Laboratories, LLC. (DDL).

From our early beginnings in 2005 as an R&D laboratory located in Ft Collins, Colorado, Dow Development Laboratories has quickly grown into a fully functioning, FDA-registered, cGMP compliant formulation and manufacturing lab that provides expert product development services to our clients.

DDL is now located in a custom-built 12,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Petaluma, California. Our fully equipped laboratories are ideal for formulation and manufacturing, allowing us to deliver unmatched topical product development services.

  • Formulation Development and Optimization Services
  • Analytical HPLC Method Development and Validation
