Welcome to The Zlota Company

The Zlota Co., LLC provides services for rapid and robust process development using Quality by Design (QbD) methodology. We customize the use of QbD tools to the specific project objectives, whether in an early or in a late development stage, at various stages of technology transfer to pilot or manufacturing plants, in-house or at contract research organizations (CROs).

Processes that have been successfully developed include drug substance (API) and drug product, reaction and crystallization, as well as micronization projects.

Additionally, analytical method development benefits from the use of QbD tools, in particular the use of statistical design of experiments (DoE).
