The Use of Surface Science for Solving Pharmaceutical and OTC Product Challenges

Webinar Recording

Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare / OTC manufacturers are continually faced with a variety of issues throughout their development and manufacturing processes.

These include, but are not limited to contamination, formulation and tablet discoloration, packaging incompatibilities, and major product failures. Our advanced analytical method development service allows our clients to implement and validate methods to evaluate their products, and our world class surface science suite is leveraged for troubleshooting and counterfeiting investigations. In this webinar, Ursula Thompson explores how such techniques can be used for solving the aforementioned challenges.

Surface analysis techniques measure the chemical and physical composition of the outermost atomic layers of a material. With any manufactured item there is always a surface and this behaves very differently to the bulk.

In this webinar, look at measuring the factors controlled by surfaces, including: morphology, adhesion strength, contamination, API distribution, chemistry, and optical properties, amongst others; and look at the key questions that surface science helps us to answer:

  • What APIs, elements and compounds are present?
  • How much?
  • How did it get there?
  • How can I avoid it in the future?

The webinar serves as an excellent foundation to our future discussions with the attendees as we collaboratively work to innovate and solve together.
