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.
Topical treatments are commonly administered to treat skin conditions or inflammation and irritation. How these are formulated, stored and applied to the skin is very much down to their rheological behavior.
NETZSCH North America Commercial Testing Laboratory has set up a series of live demos based on questions we frequently hear in the field, at conferences and exhibitions about how our instruments work and the best measurements can be made. These demos are the short and sweet! Read more about the series and register for the first episode on 30 June 2020!
The Kinexus is being used to assist in the development of a new treatment for COVID-19!
Alucent Biomedical Inc. is a biomedical company dedicated to developing its breakthrough Natural Vascular Scaffolding (NVS) technology for the treatment of vascular disease. Multiple sample preparation techniques were evaluated to investigate a method that could alleviate signal artifacts attributed to sample movement during heating. Learn how the sample is prepared to achieve accurate and reproducible thermograms for biological tissue.
The shelf-life of a pharmaceutical product concerning thermal stability can be predicted using thermogravimetry measurements and the software Kinetics Neo.
Compressibility of a pharmaceutical substance can lead to changes in its crystal structure, and thus in its properties (bio-availability, flowability, …). A DSC measurement verifies the quality of the product after compression.
