Analytical characterisation plays an important role throughout the pharmaceutical manufacturing pipeline, specifically for testing the active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients, blends and final solid dosage forms. Analytical techniques available at the CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub include; particle sizing and morphology imaging, density measurements (bulk, tapped & particle), thermal stability measurements, surface area & energy, impurity detection & quantification, powder flow properties, tablet hardness and dissolution testing. Our techniques have also been used in a number of non-pharmaceutical related applications.
