When making sure pharmaceuticals comply to quality standards, there are four areas where Thermal Analysis can help to determine potential problems. This article will explain those Terms.
Thermal stability is a concept that is easy to conceive. But how to measure and quantify it? A fast and safe method for this is to use a thermobalance.
How to determine the shelf life of drugs without long time testing? First predictions about the shelf-life concerning thermal stability are achieved using thermogravimetric measurements with a kinetics Evaluation. This occurs within some hours or days.
