What are best practices and processes when working with contract formulation/formulator services and third party testing services (stability, rheology, consumer acceptance, etc.)?
How does the formulation and testing process go in terms of ideal chronology and overall process? How is coordination ideally managed among the contract formulation/formulator and various third party testing services? What are the steps in the formulation, testing and formula finalization process? What types of testing are best handled by the contract formulation/formulator services? What types of testing are best handled by third party testing services?
I would greatly appreciate and welcome any and all suggestions and comments.
