Analytical Method Development, Qualification & Validation

At Althea, we believe that the primary purpose of an analytical program is not only to satisfy regulatory requirements, but to assure the success of the clinical program.  Our analytical team provides such services as analytical program design, assay qualification, method writing and validation protocols and reports.  Every molecule is unique and we develop methods that are tailored to its characteristics.  So while some examples of methods and capabilities are listed below, we encourage you to contact us to discuss how we can develop a customized analytical program for your molecule.


Our scientists design and develop phase appropriate analytical methods and assays that support the understanding of your drug product as it advances into and through the clinic.  Below are examples of the instruments and highly specialized techniques that Althea utilizes at various stages in a drug’s development cycle:

  • Mass spectrometers (Ion Trap & Q-TOF)
  • HPLC – UV/VIS, Fluorescence, RI
  • Capillary Isoelectric Focusing (cIEF)
  • Multi-angle Light Scattering (MALS)
  • Plate readers (colorimetric, fluorescent, chemiluminescent)
  • UV/VIS Spetrophotometer
  • Electrophoresis

Althea also has specialized capabilities that are rarely offered on a contract basis:

  • Microscopic-Flow Imaging (MFI)
  • Asymmetric Flow Field Flow Fractionation (A4F)

All laboratory equipment in our Camarillo facility is either on a manufacturer’s calibration program or an internal IQ/OQ/PQ program.

Working with you from start to finish.

Taking pride in our history of quality.



Biologics Manufacturing

Analytical development is the guide for biologic manufacturing .  Having biologic manufacturing and analytical development working hand-in-hand and at a single partner will greatly shorten the time required to produce cGMP product.  Learn More

Aseptic Fill & Finish

Forget about shipping your valuable API from facility to facility for each step of the manufacturing program.  Once you protein is produced and formulated, it can be readily filled into vials or syringes for clinical or commercial use.  Learn More
