When a crystalline substance – such as an active pharmaceutical ingredient or an excipient – comes into contact with water, various types of interactions are possible. For the design of a dehydration process, it is therefore important to know the thermal properties of the particular sample. Thermogravimetric analysis in combination with kinetic evaluation helps determine this data and significantly reduce the time to develop a suitable temperature program.
The new e-learning platform, NOA (NETZSCH Online Academy) offers you to advance your Knowledge in Thermal Analysis topics, without having to leave your desk. Take advantage of flexible online learning, fully adapted to your training needs.
AutoEvaluation is an intelligent software algorithm and part of the NETZSCH Proteus® software, which automatically and autonomously evaluates thermo-analytical measurement curves. It has already been introduced and successfully applied for Differential Scanning Calorimetry and Thermogravimetric Analysis and is also available for dL signals as generated by dilatometers (DIL) and thermomechanical analyzers (TMA). As an improvement, the mean CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion) values are evaluated additionally before and after the glass transition.
Thermal Analysis and Rheology comprise essential analytical methods supporting the development of pharmaceuticals and ensuring their quality. Watch our new video and learn how NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing contributes to the development and quality control of pharmaceuticals!

Learn here how to quickly determine the water content of magnesium stearate, one of the most widely used pharmaceutical excipients.
From liquids to highly-filled thermosets to metals and ceramics – all such materials can be measured with the DMA 242 E Artemis. We even evaluate hair samples and the influence of hair care products.
Our video series “Expert Insights into Substance Analysis” continues! Today, Dr. Joana Pinto (Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering GmbH) introduces three examples studying the interaction of drugs and excipients using thermal analysis.
Closed indoor spaces are a problem due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 via aerosols, especially in winter, when cold temperatures limit the ability to air rooms. A body of experts investigates the extent to which particle concentrations in enclosed indoor spaces can decreased with the help of highly effective indoor filters. The smoke density test device from NETZSCH TAURUS Instrument was also used in this context. Read more in the article!
