Small molecule therapeutics are very flexible, with a variety of administrations routes, from pills, capsules, to inhalation devices. The quality of many of these products depends on knowing how much of a component is present, how it is distributed, and what size it is. HORIBA has a portfolio of analytical instruments that address these questions, with a full range of particles sizing techniques, to best-in-class Raman microscopy. This portfolio of products speeds up product development, answers critical questions for troubleshooting, and is indispensable for contaminant identification.

Rapid Particle Size Analysis of Topical Ophthalmic Formulations
Drug particle size and distribution are key critical quality attributes that govern stability, ocular retention via solution thickness, and therapeutic release characteristics. The laser diffraction technique is an elegant method used to establish the fundamentals of ophthalmic formulations prior to pharmacokinetic or clinical studies. To fulfill the requirements set out by the FDA, our recommendation is the Partica LA-960V2 Particle Size Analyzer.
