Gamma scintigraphy is a powerful and versatile technology used to investigate the in-vivo performance of your drug or product. This non-invasive imaging technique allows us to follow the fate of the dosage form and administering it to a volunteer or patient. Not limited to just oral dosage forms, gamma scintigraphy can be used to image formulation behaviour in the lungs, eyes, nose, oesophagus or any other site of administration of your product. PK analysis can be coupled with scintigraphy to give a complete picture of your products behaviour. We are market leaders in gamma scintigraphy with a proven track record and a global client base.

Scintigraphy is a powerful, fast and incredibly effective tool providing a much clearer picture than PK data alone offers.
