You believe your pharmaceutical facility is taking every precaution to prevent contamination, but then you discover that there are unidentified spots on a batch of tablets or particles floating in a liquid medication. What’s going on? That question may be difficult or even impossible to answer just from looking at […]
Stability testing is an essential part of clinical trials, whether you plan to market your product in the U.S. or abroad. Unfortunately, because stability testing involves studying how a product changes over a long period, it’s inherently time-consuming and can monopolize valuable in-house resources. For many manufacturers, the logical solution […]
Medical devices, whether they’re as simple as disposable examination gloves or as complex as pacemakers, must be proven to be biocompatible before they can go to market. Biocompatibility testing is especially important for devices that are designed to deliver a drug or come into contact with human tissue. Healthcare professionals […]
Method development is a key element of pharmaceutical development, and it can’t be overlooked when starting the process of creating a new drug. While it’s often considered routine, it’s integral to maintaining cost efficiency. With the right method development and validation guidelines in place, your company can optimize resources and […]
We use household cleaners, including multi-surface and glass cleaners, to mop up such a huge variety of messes that the ingredients in each bottle have to be capable of breaking down all kinds of materials. But those ingredients also have to be limited in their capacity to cause damage to […]

Once you’ve developed your product, whether it’s food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, or even a medical device—attractive packaging can go the final mile towards convincing consumers to purchase it. Your company’s packaging can make or break a sale, […]
Pharmaceutical deformulation, the reverse engineering of a product’s formulation, is a necessary process to create generic drugs. Even before patent expiration, skilled chemists must perform a detailed analysis to identify, quantify, and characterize the original formula’s active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and its excipients, whether it’s a drug or supplement.
Successful generics […]
If a product injures a consumer due to a defect or improper labeling, every party in the distribution chain is potentially liable. The product liablity thus potentially extends to:
The product manufacturer
A contractor who manufactured parts used in the final product
A third party that assembled or installed the […]
Getting your company’s medical device ready to bring to market means working to meet FDA standards. The FDA’s regulations help ensure your medical device is safe for the public, and there are various pathways toward achieving approval. The average timeline for medical device development is roughly 3-7 years, though actual […]
It’s easy to overlook danger to humans when selecting chemicals to include in cleaning solutions. Manufacturers and developers become more concerned about the ability of their products to clean than how they affect consumers’ skin, sensory organs, internal organs, and biological systems.
There are potentially harmful toxic chemicals inside many common […]
