We can help you through the entire process of solid form selection, from initial screening to development and scale-up stability tests
Oral administration is still the preferred route for most patients, and as a result, many active pharmaceutical ingredients are formulated as solids. Having the optimal solid form of an API is crucial to ensure an optimal bioavailability profile, long-term stability and strong intellectual property stratergy.
At Enantia, we can help you through the entire process of solid form selection: from initial screening, characterisation, stability and performance tests, to development and scale-up and long-term stability tests.
Factors such as solubility, stability or melting point, can be improved by having an adequate crystalline structure. This is independent of whether the molecule has points which are able to be ionised or not. Our programs are based on:
Any molecule or compound arranged in an ordered crystal lattice is susceptible to exhibit polymorphism. Different polymorphs and solvates of a pharmaceutical solid may have different chemical and physical properties. They may appear under certain conditions therefore the study of the polymorphic landscape of a molecule or compound is a necessary step in order to ensure a quality drug substance. This also increases the IP strength of the compound in question.
We undertake comprehensive polymorph screenings and use techniques to favour the appearance of stable and metastable forms.
