Raw material identification or incoming goods inspection is of paramount importance for the quality and safety of drug products, wherever chemical substances are used in the pharmaceutical industry – maybe as an educt of chemical reactions or as a basis for further processing.
Polymer blends offer significant advantages during their service life. However, they make recycling at the end of life difficult. One of the most fundamental problems is the identification of the material as a blend as well as its composition to ensure it is sorted properly and can be reused if possible. Read how to TGA and FT-IR help with the identification and join our webinar series on TG-FT-IR!
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) offers a quick and easy way to determine the purity of crystalline substances. Only one measurement with a few milligrams of sample is needed. Read here how it works!
The increasing number of product recalls in recent months has again made us aware how important the purity of drug ingredients is. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is able to quickly analyze the absolute purity of chemical compounds within a single run, without the need for a reference standard.
Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is the most commonly used medication for pain and fever in both the United States and Europe. However, it is not worth getting a headache when you think about its physicochemical properties. Thermal analysis, and especially differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), is of great help.
We are excited to share the news that NETZSCH Instruments NA is hosting the 35th International Thermal Conductivity Conference (ITCC) and the 23rd International Thermal Expansion Symposium (ITES) in September 2021. Learn more!
From the chemical point of view, diamonds are just made of carbon. The phenomenon that chemical elements can occur in different forms within the same phase, i.e., in different structural modifications, is called allotropy. Due to the relationship between crystal modification and melting point, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is ideally suited to discriminate between different polymorphic forms. A more general term for chemical compounds is polymorphism.
Thermal Analysis, in particular DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry) and TGA (Thermogravimetric Analysis), provides valuable information for drug development, pre-formulation and quality control of pharmaceuticals. Learn more about the applications of Thermal Analysis in the pharmaceutical industry.
Thermal Analysis provides powerful analytical methods for research, development and quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), excipients and formulations. Rheology perfectly complements the analytical equipment of your laboratory. Read more on the wide range of applications of DSC and Kinexus!
We discuss how rheology can be used to characterize anti-ageing dermal fillers.
