Analytical Tools & Techniques in Hot Melt Extrusion


Hot melt extrusion has been widely used as a processing method for many purposes, including forming a solid molecular dispersion to increase the bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs. Analytical tools and techniques can significantly reduce time and improve success rates in developing hot melt extrusion formulations.

In the scale-up phase, analytical characterization techniques ensure similar solubility enhancement occurs on larger extrusion equipment as with the lab scale equipment used for formulation development.

In this whitepaper, you will learn more about the analytical characterization and techniques that are critical in the scale-up of melt-extruded solid dispersions to ensure similar products are produced, specifically in obtaining similar solubility-enhancing effects.
