Characterization of Pharmaceutical Formulations

Quantification of ingredient

  • API (also conformity, optical activity)
  • Retardating agents, excipients

Homogenity of pharmaceutical formulation

  • Inhomogenity, degree of distribution/ tablet decomposition
  • Agglomeration behavior of excipients (phospholipids, liposomes, lecithin): mycelium formulation, solution properties, emulsifying behavior etc.

Aerosols and Inhalation Systems

  • Release behavior of API from carrier materials and comparison of generic and originator formulations
  • e.g. aerosols with API on lactose: Distinction agent – carrier to grain size of 2 µm
