  • Battling Counterfeit Medicine Through Packaging Serialization

    Medicines need to be packaged in a way that allows counterfeits to be quickly and easily identified, preventing their circulation and/or eliminating drug recalls. An essential element of this process is package serialization. Outsourcing work with contract manufacturers is one such way to be fully prepared for serialization implementation across all production lines.

  • Pediatric Dosage Form Considerations For Highly Potent Compounds

    The development of pediatric medicine poses numerous challenges to pharmaceutical formulators, particularly products intended for infants and very young children. This white paper describes special considerations for selecting appropriate pediatric dosage forms and the benefits of choosing mini-tablets (e.g., orodispensible) for pediatric formulation, particularly for highly potent compounds.


  • Scale-Up Considerations For Large-Scale Peptide Manufacturing

    The chemical and operational challenges and risks of peptide synthesis are magnified when considering the transition from lab-scale preparation to large-scale plant manufacturing.
