Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is by far the most widely used thermal analysis technique in the pharmaceutical field and is already playing an important role for decades – from pre-formulation tests to quality control. DSC allows for the determination of fundamental physicochemical properties such as melting/crystallization temperatures, heats of fusion or glass transition temperatures for active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), excipients and formulations. Rheology perfectly complements the analytical equipment of your laboratory and allows, among many other applications, for the specification of a suitable viscosity for different pharmaceutical products. Using selected examples, the webinar introduces the thermal analysis method DSC and as well as rotational and capillary rheology and provides an overview of the broad application range of the methods.
