A recipe for success: Combining rheology and particle characterization for pharmaceutical and cosmetic product formulation

Pharmaceutical and cosmetic products based on semi-solid formulations such as creams and ointments are versatile, but development, production and storage of them can be demanding. Analytical methods such as particle characterization and rheology are relevant for acceleration of the development of such disperse systems, and to ensure both product quality and safety.
In the first part of the webinar, you will learn about particle analysis, with a focus on laser diffraction. In the second, you will learn how to use rheological methods to characterize semi-solid preparations with rotational and oscillatory tests. In the third, the company RaDes GmbH, experts in the field of semi-solid and liquid dosage forms, will provide you with practical application examples and demonstrate how formulation and product quality benefit from these characterization methods.
