The Future of Formulation Development – Using Synchrotron Light
September 27 @ 08:00 - September 28 @ 17:00
This autumn, Lund University Commissioned Education is arranging to hold a two-day course with the purpose to spread information about how synchrotron facilities (such as Max IV, Lund) can be a great asset for formulation technology. Synchrotron Light has been used in the last decade to study formulations manufactured by the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industry. The use of synchrotron light has allowed characterizing liquid and solid formulations, i.e. fingerprinting compounds and quantifying traces of polymorphs in a solid tablet formulation, and characterizing variants in biopharmaceuticals. Moreover, the presence of the last generation synchrotron facilities such as MAX IV will definitely bring the research in these areas beyond the limitations faced nowadays.
