Thermal Analysis and Rheology for Pharmaceutical Applications

Thermal Analysis provides powerful analytical methods for research, development and quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients and formulations. This implies the determination of their physicochemical properties such as melting point, glass transition temperature and heat of fusion, compatibility studies to find suitable API-excipient combinations, purity assessments (eutectic purity) and characterization of polymorphic forms.

Rheology perfectly complements the analytical equipment of your laboratory and allows for the specification of a suitable viscosity for different pharmaceutical products, assessment of flow limits of ointments and creams, predictions of storage stability by means of oscillation measurements as well as the determination of mechanical characteristics of soft gels.
