What Is The Solution To Drug Shortages?
As of July 2013, drug shortages seem to be getting worse and the drug shortage is not the result of numerous manufacturing issues but of something far more sinister.
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Pharmaceutical Company Cuts Packaging Costs
In tough economic times, First Priority, manufacturer of generic veterinary pharmaceutical products, decided it was time to take a hard look at where they could cut costs without compromising on efficiencies and quality of their products.
Striving For Label Perfection In Clinical Trials
No other labeling process in the pharmaceutical industry is as complex as clinical trial labeling. Clintrak Clinical Labeling Services knows this first hand and has been committed to finding a way to reduce the amount of time and money spent on proofreading in order to improve their process.
Viscosity Flow Curve Tells All
Characterizing any material for flow behavior involves testing it over a range of shear rates relevant to how it is processed in manufacturing or how it is used by the consumer. Ointments, for example, are used to coat human body parts like skin, lips, finger/toe nails, hair, eyeballs, etc. The coating action is such that the medicinal mixture, once applied to the surface of the object, spreads as it is rubbed into place. Therefore, a relevant viscosity test would employ shear rates that mimic this type of spreading action.
Absorption Vs. Ultraviolet-Visible Range Spectrophotometry
Spectrophotometry is a technique employed when quantitative measurement and analysis of specific spectra of light is required. From simple quality assurance techniques to advanced chemical analysis, spectrophotometry is a robust and widely used process that spans multiple disciplines and industries. By Randy Klimek
Detecting Counterfeit Drugs With Spectrophotometers
Spectrophotometers are a special class of devices that are used to detect and to analyze visible wavelengths of light reflecting off of, or passing through, a sample object. By Randy Klimek
Weigh Loss Or Gain? Checkweighing In The Pharmaceutical Industry
Prices for pharmaceutical products have been increasing at an accelerated rate for over a decade. The increases are being driven by increased product competition, coupled with the growing cost of research and development, the increase in patent laws and greater government legislation as well as the price transparency created by insurance companies worldwide.
