Deformulation, Reverse Engineering of pharmaceutical formulations and Beyond
The knowledge about excipient characteristics and the available analytical methodologies and procedures enable us to identify and quantify individual excipients in a drug product. The process of analytically breaking down a material or product’s formulation into separate components and determine the specific identity and exact quantity of constituent components is called deformulation or chemical reverse engineering.
Our experience in excipient characterization enables us not only to identify and quantify individual excipients in a complex product, but often also confirm the grade, quality and sometimes even the source of the ingredients.
Thanks to the unique combination with a pharmaceutical development and enhanced dissolution testing platform within Avivia, we can offer additional insight into other product characteristics, such as detailed release performance or insight into the applied production techniques or processes. If desired, we can reconstruct a copy of the product.
