NEW! Proprietary Technologies


DDE Labs’ proprietary technology involves new salt forms of active pharmaceutical ingredients, including peptides, proteins, antibodies, oligonucleotides, and polysaccharides. These salts will be used in a variety of new drug delivery, formulation, and pharmaceutical applications ranging from extended-release injectable products to co-formulation of active ingredients in injection systems, and stabilization.

  • New salt forms of peptide, protein, antibody, oligonucleotides, and polysaccharides
  • Applications in extended-release injection, stabilization, and co-formulation
  • High encapsulation efficiency and high drug load for biologics
  • Simple and mild aqueous manufacturing process


DDE Labs has also developed a novel device technology designed for oral delivery of active agents to the GI tract. This unique delivery device enhances systemic bioavailability and allows controlled delivery to various regions within the GI system or other organs. The oral capsule device may be used for improving the systemic bioavailability of poorly absorbed compounds such as biologics, biopolymers, and small molecules.

  • Oral delivery technology for enhancing bioavailability of biologics
  • Device is based on simple parts and principles in pharmaceutical injection systems
  • Simple to manufacture, low cost, with bio-compatible materials commonly used in devices
