Research and Development

Dear Masters of Pharmaceutical Sciences,


Elixir has been founded in 2014 as a pharmaceutical research and development company, aiming to serve global pharmaceutical industry through its high technology laboratory, scientific background and innovative thinking.


We develop new and generic drug products and manufacturing processes meeting both EMA and FDA standards, perform technology transfer from our laboratory to pharmaceutical manufacturing sites, and conduct co-development studies with clients and strategic partners operating in Turkey, EU and the US.


Our laboratory is located in the Technology Development Zone of Hacettepe University, which is one of the Europe's leading universities in medical and pharmaceutical sciences. All our scientists are pharmacists, who also have doctorate degrees in pharmaceutical technology or are doctoral candidates.


We focus on the development of oral solid, oral liquid, semi-solid, nasal and parenteral dosage forms among others, and specialise in integrating Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) into pharmaceutical development studies.


In Elixir, we not only obtain the data that meet the requirements of health authorities but we also generate knowledge that can be used to explain the scientific fundamentals of the formulations and the processes we develop. We should never forget that a drug product, like a living organism, has a life cycle and it evolves with changing raw materials, manufacturing sites, operators, machines, etc., that may lead the drug product to a very different state than it was first developed, causing possible performance and manufacturing problems. To prevent or solve these problems, we need to have a certain control on the formulation and the manufacturing process, which requires a deep scientific understanding instead of an empirical approach. But unfortunately, ARS LONGA VITA BREVIS. However, Elixir would always be pleased to share its expertise with you.


May the Force be with you!
