Delivery Science | Hot Melt Extrusion for Drug/Polymer Blends - Foster was founded in 1989 to serve the specialty polymer blending requirements for newly emerging minimally invasive medical device companies.

  • Contract Research and Development | Delivery Science - Pre-Formulation Studies Rapid screening studies Proof of Concept (PoC) studies Excipient compatibility studies Solid and Liquid State Solubility Screening Solid Dispersions Surfactant and co-solvent screenings Analytical characterization of solid dispersions including kinetic solubility and dissolution rate.
  • Custom Shaping | Delivery Science - Melt extrusion can be used as a process for the manufacture of many dosage forms. Foster’s inventory of downstream processing equipment is available to manufacture traditional and customized shapes.
  • Analytical Testing | Delivery Science - Foster offers a full suite of cGMP analytical characterization services to support proof of concept, formulation development, clinical trial materials and commercial manufacturing. Our cGMP analytical services are available for existing clients as well as stand-alone studies.  
  • Project Management | Delivery Science - Foster Delivery Science provides project management services for the successful execution of drug development programs.
  • Explanation of Process | Delivery Science - Recent advances in drug discovery have led to an increase in the number of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) that are poorly water soluble (PWS). These PWS drugs cannot be formulated using traditional methods. Hot melt extrusion is emerging as a leading technology for increasing drug solubility and enhancing bioavailability.
  • Benefits of Hot Melt Extrusion | Delivery Science - Hot melt extrusion offers several advantages over traditional processing techniques, which make it an attractive alternative for drug development programs. These advantages include enhanced bioavailability, lower doses, and reduced production costs. Additional advantages of hot melt extrusion processing include:  
  • Polymers & Excipients | Delivery Science - Foster Delivery Science has experience with new and existing polymers and excipients used for pharmaceutical applications. Common polymers used for drug delivery applications include:
  • Application Segments | Delivery Science - Foster Delivery Science is a contract research and manufacturing firm specializing in hot melt extrusion of active pharmaceutical ingredients and polymers for highly regulated applications including pharmaceuticals and implantable drug/device combination products. Foster’s inventory of downstream processing equipment is specifically designed for the manufacturing of customized delivery forms including: pellets, tablets, transdermal & transmucosal films, monofilaments, bioresorbable implants as well as drug eluting devices.

  • Careers | Delivery Science - Employment Opportunities Foster Corporation is currently hiring for the following positions. If you are interested in applying for an open position, please submit your resume to human resources.  
  • About Foster | Delivery Science - Foster Corporation was founded in 1989 to serve the specialty polymer requirements of newly emerging medical device companies. Since inception, Foster has become a leader in custom blending and extrusion of biomedical polymers and addtives.
  • Our Facility | Delivery Science - Foster Delivery Science operates out of two facilities in the U.S. Our original facility is located with the Foster Corporation headquarters in Putnam, CT and is 6,000 square feet (5557m2) in size, containing one cGMP suite and a process development laboratory. This original facility is ISO 13485: 2003 and ISO 9001: 2008 certified, registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has a research license with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA, Schedule II-V).
  • Quality Certifications | Delivery Science - At Foster, we believe that drug product development and manufacturing begins with a total commitment to quality. Our quality and regulatory systems represent our commitment to every phase of our business. Quality Assurance is a key element but is only part of the commitment. This commitment is a foundation in our corporate culture and demands quality in every service we offer and every system our business is built on.
  • Foamed Hot Melt Extrusion for Solid Molecular Dispersions | Delivery Science - A significant number of new active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are poorly water soluble and cannot be formulated and processed with traditional aqueous methods. Hot melt extrusion (HME) has become an effective solubilization tool in improving the dissolution rate of poorly water soluble drugs to enhance their bioavailability after oral administration1. These crystalline hydrophobic drugs can be dispersed in hydrophilic polymers using HME to manufacture amorphous solid dispersions.

  • Knapp Reader - Great vacuum for the price

    I bought our Hoover 4 years ago. We use it daily to clean mostly bare floors--laminate and tile--but also clean area carpets and small sections of pile carpet with it. We had to have it repaired once (the good news is, it CAN be repaired) but otherwise, it has been consistently reliable. We vacuum kitty litter daily, plus cat hair. Contrary to one review, we have no problem with the brush collecting stuff; we do use the brush setting frequently though and I'm guessing it is self-cleaning. It is easy to empty the canister, easy to tell when the battery is running low, and easy to use. Do clean the filter at the top of the canister often (weekly?). The smaller head makes it much easier to negotiate around table legs and corners than a large vacuum.

  • Kayla Steffens - The nail get's weird because the tips are stickers! ...

    The nail get's weird because the tips are stickers! They are slightly transparent so they aren't perfectly white. When filing them, they break instead of fitting right. I've used stick on nail polish and never had this problem.

  • Captain Awesome - Fantastic Value

    I'm based in the UK and bought my unit there. However, physically this model is nearly identical to ours (to my knowledge only the keyboard layout and socket you need for charging it differs) and I've been using Chrome OS and previous Chrome hardware for a while, so I thought I'd give my take on this device.

  • Amazon Customer - Make the jersey yourself...HORRIBLE!!!!!!

    Buyer beware! Do not do business with this shop they send out fake and terrible quality jerseys but charge for a real jersey. I received a defective item and was never offered an exchange, instead I was interrogated like I damaged the jersey. RIDICULOUS! For the price you pay you would expect a quality jersey but nope it WAS awful. Never in my life have I bought a jersey or shirt and had this many problems!! Never again

  • LivisMom - Great help :)

    When I realized I had gained 50 pounds a year after I graduated from high school, I freaked! I had a lot going on and paid no attention to the things I was eating. Well, even though I'm young, it''s hard for me to workout because I already get arthritis pains ( my mother has it real bad and passed it on to me) I wanted help for losing weight and let me tell you, this stuff is great. It does everything it says it does. My appetite wasn't as beastly ( which really surprised me ) and I did feel energized but without the jittery feeling. It helped me drop 20 pounds within two months ( worked out maybe three times a week and replaced my fattening snacks with fruit and healthy chips)
