Extending the quality and applicability of pharmaceutical dissolution testing

The efficacy of most pharmaceutical products requires their dissolution and subsequent absorption into the bloodstream. Consequently, in vitro testing techniques that reliably reflect this aspect of behaviour are crucial to clinical success. Dissolution testing already underpins both the development and quality control of solids dosage forms and is now on the radar of those developing products for inhaled drug delivery. We take a look at recent innovations in this vital area of pharmaceutical analysis.
