Particle and powder properties and characterization
Particle characterization is a critical step in the development of solid-form and suspension formulations. Parameters, such as particle size distribution, mobility, charge and morphology can affect everything from the processing flowability of compounds to their deliverability and bioavailability.
We use the latest techniques in optical imaging, laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering and X-ray powder diffraction to characterize APIs, excipients and final drugs, working in the nanometer to millimeter range.
Discover our complete analysis packages and state-of-the-art equipment for particle and powder characterization.
When drug formulations are complex, pharmacokinetic studies may not fully define bioavailability or the exact behavior of a drug as it is stored, processed or used. To comply with many regulatory standards, rheological testing is a requirement, particularly when it comes to demonstrating equivalence in generics.
Our state-of-the-art rheometer services enable full characterization of drug formulations, even in complex states. Critical properties, such as viscosity, yield stress and viscoelasticity are all defined quickly and accurately, ready for submission.

X-ray powder diffraction
Understanding the physical properties of a solid formulation is critical at every point on the drug discovery and development journey. As one of the industry leaders in X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), we use cutting-edge technology to provide rapid, non-destructive analysis of solid forms.
Each solid form will create a unique diffraction pattern so even polymorphs can be quickly identified, allowing the drug to be optimized and any issues in development, scale-up or manufacturing identified.
