Optimizing Dehydration Processes of Pharmaceuticals with Kinetics Neo

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.

Winter and Summer Tires or Rather All-Season Tires?

Twice a year it’s time to change tires. But is it really necessary to replace summer tires with winter tires every six months? Isn’t it better to do without the two and use all-season tires instead? We will answer that question for you.

One Click AutoEvaluation for Dilatometer Signals (dL) Improved

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.

Smart Thermal Analysis: Measurements Wanted?

Imagine the typical situation in everyday laboratory work: A new sample has to be analyzed, but what are the suitable measurement conditions such as temperature program, sample mass or the right crucible? And what measurement results can be expected? Perhaps such kind of sample was already measured by you in the past ‒ or maybe by NETZSCH. Wouldn’t it help a lot to simply search in a database for thermal analysis? Identify, which is a part of the Proteus® analysis software, is the solution!

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 more
