Fast Compatibility Check by Means of DSC and SuperPosition

Drug-excipient compatibility studies constitute an important phase in the development stage (pre-formulation) of dosage forms. They provide information whether physicochemical interactions happen between API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) and excipients. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TGA) are fast and easy-to-use methods to get first information about drug-excipient compatibility. For that, DSC and/or TGA measurements are … Read moreFast Compatibility Check by Means of DSC and SuperPosition

How to Detect Harmful Substances in Sporting Goods and Toys

NETZSCH Sporting Goods Toys

Sporting goods and toys for kids or pets are often made of flexible plastics. Some examples are sensory chewing toys, action figurines as well as balls of various kinds. A common polymer used for these applications is PVC (polyvinylchloride), because it can be made softer and more flexible by adding plasticizers. Therefore, they can evaporate or be rinsed out by saliva or sweat. Learn how to determine detect and identify plasticizers!

Drug-Excipient Compatibility Check

Drug-excipient compatibility studies are an important part during the development of a new formulation. They ensure that no interaction occurs between drug and excipients that could affect the properties, stability, efficacy of the active ingredient. Thermal Analysis is used for rapid assessment of physicochemical interactions.
