Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics
Research and quality control in the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industry
Research plays a huge part in the development of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
We are often surprised to learn how much research goes on behind the scenes in the production of well known pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.
In modern medicine pharmaceutical tablets are the most popular method of administering drugs to a patient. Tablets are made up of a combination of active and inactive substances and can be coated or un-coated leading to a huge variety in the final product.
Effective coatings must closely follow the contours of a tablet, be able to survive handling and not stick together. Technically the coating must protect the tablet from moisture and allow a controlled release of the drug once ingested.
In this application note Nanovea have compared the roughness of three different tablet brands according to ISO 25178. The work took place using the HS2000 high speed non-contact optical profilometer.
