Pharmaceutical & Drug Discovery Laboratory EquipmentPharmaceutical Lab Equipment

There are many key developmental phases, services, and processes within pharma and drug discovery laboratories.

Pharmaceutical development includes (but is not limited to) formulation, such as API, preformuation, screening, etc; preclinical development, such as pharmacology services, ADME-Tox, biomarker testing, and more.

Services include analytical testing services, such as method development/validation, bioanalytical testing, assay development, clinical trials services, raw material testing services, etc.; and contract pharma services, such as CRO services/outsourcing, contract packaging, contract manufacturing, etc.

Pharmaceutical Testing:

Whether you are performing the testing on site or utilize services from a pharmaceutical testing company, the various studies and validations include:
  • Potency
  • Purity
  • pH
  • Microbial and fungal identification
  • Anitmicrobial effectiveness testing
  • Dissolution
  • Stability testing
  • Sterility testing
  • Endotoxin testing
  • Biological testing (screenings, assays, SDS/PAGE)
  • Uniformity
  • Preservation
  • And more!

What are the various types of laboratory and analytical pharmaceutical test equipment?

Whether your need is from biomolecular interaction analysis to particle characterization, pharmaceutical test equipment is largely varied based upon the various testing applications.

Pharmaceutical test equipment includes, but is not limited to: tablet testing equipment, such as friability testers, dissolution samplers; refractometers; powder handling equipment; or freeze dryers.

What to key considerations when choosing pharmaceutical test equipment?

Depending on your specific testing requirements, considerations when choosing pharmaceutical test equipment not only include regulatory compliance and cost, but also analysis time and throughput. High- quality testing allows for achieving regulatory approval in shorter time periods, while reducing costs and improved turnaround testing.

Newsworthy Advancements:

Sub-visible particle, also known as SVP, have been a concern for the pharma industry for their biopharmaceutical side effects. SVP aggregates occur in development due to changes in temperature or mechanical stimulation. Improvements in aggregation analysis systems in the market enable improved QC and screening, all with intent to eliminate SVP aggregates in early stages of development.
