Do more with Less
Every day, new compounds are produced within food, personal care, dye, agro and pharmaceutical industry. These compounds are getting more and more complex, making dosage determination and formulation more difficult. In order to obtain the solid state form with desired properties, solid state screening needs to be performed.
You can accelerate your crystallization research with the CrystalBreeder and Crystal16 parallel crystallizers, the ultimate tools for solid-state research. Designed by scientists for scientists, these tools are user-friendly multi-reactor benchtop systems with intuitive software to perform medium-throughput crystallization studies. It offers invaluable assistance throughout the various stages of the drug development life cycle, from discovery to preclinical screening.
Some compounds just do not have the required solubility or dissolution rate and often they are killed in the development process due to their high energy state. Amorphous materials are seen as a solution to this problem, because of their high energy state which gives rise to improved dissolution rates and apparent solubility. The big problem with amorphous materials, is that they are inherently unstable and tend to crystallize, thereby loosing these advantageous material properties. This application note highlights a way for automisation of amorphous solid dispersion screening, enabling the fast and effective identification of new solid dispersions of compounds.
