Your one-stop-shop for validation, tech transfers and quality management

Whether you are working in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, cosmetics, or any other highly regulated industry, controlling quality risks is vital. With almost 100 quality experts, Quality by Design (QbD) is your one-stop-quality-shop. We help companies control quality risks during product development, production and distribution. How? By validating your processes, applications and equipment. Or by improving your quality management or tech transfers. Everything to make sure you sleep soundly.
