Identifying and Detecting Salt Exchange in Pharmaceutical Tablets with LDIR Chemical Imaging



Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in tablets need to maintain their chemical state and structure to achieve their expected therapeutic effects. Sometimes, APIs can transform from the acid or base form to a salt or vice versa, with negative effects on the tablet's integrity.

The Agilent 8700 LDIR Chemical Imaging System can effectively identify this exchange, providing a fast and effective tool for troubleshooting and formulation development studies.
