Direct Analysis of Drugs in Biofluids

Sample pretreatment is often a time consuming and labor-intensive step which can be a restricting factor for the rapid analysis. This is especially true for the analysis of drugs in biofluids containing many interfering matrices.

Characterization of Polymeric Excipients by SEC-IR

Excipients are pharmacologically inactive substances used as carrier and release controllers for active drug ingredients. A significant amount (30–80% solid) of polymeric excipients such as hydroxyl propyl cellulose (HPC), hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS), and povidone are used.
