New solid dosage brochure from Copley Scientific is handbook for pharmaceutical product testing

26 September 2007; Nottingham, UK: Far from simply being sales literature, the new solid dosage brochure from Copley Scientific is a distillation of the company’s recognised expertise in the area of pharmaceutical product testing. It provides detailed information for the analysis of a wide range of solid dosage forms, extensively referencing both regulatory requirements and pharmacopoeia guidance. Copley Scientific is a major supplier of solid dosage equipment, and the world’s leading manufacturer of inhaler test equipment.

A clear, easy to use manual, the brochure is a valuable tool for analysts charged with the testing of creams and ointments, powders, suppositories, tablets and capsules, and transdermal patches. It is sub-divided on the basis of delivery route into three main areas – gastrointestinal, mucosal membrane and skin surface. Inhaler testing is the subject of a separate brochure.
