Rapid reliable excipient compatibility testing
The assessment of stability (of actives, excipients and/or formulated products) is an important, and often time-consuming part of pharmaceutical product development.
During early preclinical development of formulations, it is often required to test for compatibility between the active ingredient and a variety of chosen excipients. However, the time spent conducting suitable stress-testing studies, combined with complex method development and validation of analytical test procedures for sample analysis often mean that these studies are overlooked at this stage.
Using INNOVATIVE IN HOUSE METHODS sophisticated high sensitivity instruments, we can screen dozens of excipients and actives in parallel, with a typical full screening program lasting just a few days! No simple DSC methods, improved method for rapid results and differentiation of physical and chemical effects.
Such supporting studies can dramatically reduce the time required for development by rapidly giving a go/no go decision on excipient choice to be used in the formulation.
