  • The  pharmaceutical industry faces constant challenges, not only due to drug discovery issues, but to the many regulations changes, as well. To maintain competitiveness and profitability, fast and innovative solutions are critical.
  • Considering the increasing number of molecules to be screened, selected, tested for ligands or analytes, characterization must be accurate and fast, providing not only a bio-chemical profile, but also must be able to monitor the dynamic of the drug affinity.
  • Pharmaceutical production requires fast, easy and accurate QC monitoring, that provides fast detection of drift in drug properties, along with fast decision making when contamination is suspected. This will save time and money, while providing perfect traceability.
  • HORIBA Scientific provides a comprehensive portfolio of characterization platforms for drug development, interactions studies and quality control.
