Thermal Analysis Services for Drug Composition Identification

Thermal analysis, refers to the process of measuring the physicochemical properties of a substance as a function of temperature under programmed temperature control and determining whether the crystalline forms of drugs are different from each other from the measured thermal analysis curves. However, since drugs have different crystalline forms, they may also absorb and exert heat differently when heated or cooled. CD Formulation tests samples by differential scanning calorimetry, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric analysis to gain more insight into the morphological characteristics and degradation pathways of the crystalline ground, thus facilitating the development and commercialization of the drug product.
