Pharmaceutical Testing

Pharmaceutical characterisation by X-ray diffraction, to determine the crystal structure and match it to an existing pharmaceutical crystallographic database, and by differential thermal analysis/scanning calorimetry, can help ensure that your pharmaceutical product is pure, matches the description on the box, and matches the patent.

Particle sizing for precipitate suspensions, powders and emulsions can help perfect delivery mechanisms and monitor process control for quality control and assurance.

The techniques we use are:

  • Quantitative X-ray Diffraction using Rietveld refinement
  • Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) /Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
  • Laser diffraction particle size analysis
  • Particle counting by laser extinction
  • Particle counting by Coulter Counter
  • NATA
  • Australian Institute of Petroleum
  • Australian X-Ray Analytical Association
  • Royal Australian Chemical Institute
  • Telstra Business Awards
  • Scientific Partners Australia
