Inhalation Studies Clinical Trials

Inhalation offers a significant advantage over other methods of administration of medication as the drug is delivered directly to the lungs, which ensures a high concentration of the active ingredient at the site of action, and low systemic levels of the active ingredient.


  • Dosing in segregated area & videography
  • Negative air chambers to prevent cross contamination
  • Canisters weighed before and after dosing
  • Readily available bioanalytical methods for Mometasone, Fluticasone, Formoterol, Albuterol, Tiotropium and Ipratropium
  • State of the Art instrumentation to ensure measurement of even lowest Lower Limit of Quantification (LLOQ) addressing dosing and pharmacokinetic needs
  • Dedicated wet-lab and instrumentation room

Our dedicated well-trained team of bioanalytical scientists are specialized in developing sensitive and robust methods capable of providing quantitation at sub-picogram level, which is a critical attribute for the success for any inhalation study.

Bioanalytical Methods Developed for

  • Mometasone (1pg/mL)
  • Fluticasone (0.5pg/mL)
  • Formoterol (0.4pg/mL)
  • Tiotropium (0.5pg/mL)
  • Ipratropium (0.5pg/mL)
  • Vilanterol (1 pg/mL)
  • Budesonide (10pg/mL)
  • Beclomethasone dipropionate and monopropionate (10pg/mL)
  • Albuterol (20pg/mL)

Euglycemic Clamp Studies

Navitas Life Sciences has extensive experience and expertise carrying out state of the art Euglycemic clamp studies, the gold standard for assessing insulin sensitivity in humans. The euglycemic clamp studies measure the glucose-lowering effect of biosimilar insulin compounds using a variable glucose infusion rate (GIR).


The euglycemic clamp technique is the gold standard for assessing insulin sensitivity in humans. Demonstration of similarity Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of the biosimilar with that of the reference (comparator) is considered the mainstay of proof of similarity in efficacy and safety of the biosimilar when compared to the reference.


Efficient Total and Transferrin bound Iron assay for Iron Sucrose Formulations

Navitas life sciences has developed robust methodologies for evaluating Iron-Carbohydrate preparations, leveraging our extensive knowledge about the complexities in iron sucrose preparations and the availability of the right resources. Our ability to find unique solutions to addresses customer expectations in a regulated bioanalysis environment aid us in bringing your iron preparation to the market faster.


U.S. FDA Review

We have had multiple successful inspections over the last 10 years by global regulators including USFDA, DCGI, ThaiFDA, EMA (ANSM & AGES), and WHO.

In July 2022, we completed a successful US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Inspection of our Manipal Clinical Facility, with no observations and, thereby, no 483s. It was indicated during the inspection that we were one of few organizations that strictly deployed COVID-19 preventive measures, while our approach of detailed investigation of events and deviations was also well appreciated. We provided seamless source data provision with scientific discussions and deliberations, which was appreciated by the inspector, culminating in the successful closeout.
