An excipient is a compound that is added to a pharmaceutical formulation together with the active ingredient. Just as the active, the excipients need to be thoroughly characterized or the future might hold: batch-to-batch variations, sudden phase separations, solution issues, aggregation, up-scaling issues, fouling and other scary things…
When we characterize your excipients we do this based on the key attributes that is important for the intended use, not on generic specifications – because those will fail… If the analytical methods doesn’t exist that is needed to eliminate your biggest fear – we develop it.
Our experience covers also excipients from natural sources with their additional challenges.
