Solid State Chemistry

Understanding the physical properties of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is critical in the development of a solid dosage form. During early development, the goal is finding a suitable solid form to enable a rapid progression to the next development milestone. In later phases of development, the focus shifts to identifying the optimal solid form for commercialization, as well as finding additional solid forms for intellectual property protection.

At Cambrex, we’re solid state chemistry experts who can deliver timely, phase-appropriate and cost-effective solutions, whether you’re looking to optimize the physical stability of your API, develop a more bioavailable formulation or overcome other solid state development challenges.

Our solid state screening programs can progress seamlessly into crystallization process development programs – that are designed to deliver improved batch-to-batch consistency with the newly optimized, solid form and bulk powder properties.
