PANalytical - Pharmaceutical Analytical Solutions

PANalytical offers a wide range of key analytical techniques and products that are used in the pharmaceutical industry for research, development and quality control purposes. These rapid non-destructive analytical techniques such as near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) can be used for a large variety of (bio-)pharmaceutical applications including drug discovery, pre-formulation, formulation, stability testing and final product quality control.

PANalytical products and solutions provide the pharmaceutical industry with analysis methods for elaborate material characterization and also help the industry to meet strict regulatory requirements.

Meeting the needs in drug development and quality control

panalyticalSpeed, reproducibility, ease of use and the adherence to the demands of a highly regulated environment are key requirements for routine pharmaceutical applications. Many X-ray analytical tools have earned their place in today's pharmaceutical development laboratories, especially in the areas of pre-formulation and formulation of solids. The non-destructive nature of the analyses often allows a multitude of process steps to be performed on the same sample without destroying its original structure.

Standardization and regulation have been embraced by the pharmaceutical community. Instruments used in this environment must provide secure operation, data validation and data traceability.

PANalytical offers a comprehensive portfolio of X-ray diffraction (XRPD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments and related modules that are invaluable in areas of interest such as full characterization of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), both small molecule and biologics, and excipients.

Non-destructive material characterization and analysis solutions

Rapid non-destructive characterization is possible for all material types, including fine chemicals, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) (small molecules and biologics), excipients (organic and inorganic) and final drug products.

Pharmacopeial X-ray techniques

Internationally recognized pharmacopeial methods (both XRD and XRF) combined with technological developments such as ultra-fast, high-resolution detectors allow X-ray techniques to be at the forefront of (bio-)pharmaceutical development reducing analysis time while providing in-depth analysis of the sample.
