3M is your one-stop provider of all of your development and commercial manufacturing needs. Our team has the experience, global capacity, and extensive quality and regulatory expertise to support our customers through every step of the product commercialization process. We can rapidly screen one or more compounds for compatibility with one of our drug delivery technologies. We then evaluate formulation, process and component variables in the feasibility phase. Results of our feasibility studies provide our partners with confidence in moving forward together to full product development and commercial supply stages as illustrated in the chart provided below.
