Pharmaceutical polymer excipients testing and analysis to confirm identity and ensure quality, stability and purity of polymeric ingredients
Polymer excipients have applications for controlled release systems, encapsulation, tablet coatings and conjugation to biologics to enhance bioavailability.
Intertek supports development of novel polymer pharmaceutical ingredients through analysis, stability and quality testing and generating analytical data for regulatory submissions for notification of new polymer substances.
Pharmaceutical inks and colorant formulations, cosmetics and wound care products also contain polymer materials. Polymer analysis, characterisation of reactive oligomers, determination of residual monomers and other organic volatile impurities (OVIs) in healthcare products are all areas of expertise at Intertek.
Our scientists provide comprehensive characterization services for synthetic polymer excipients (PEGs, PLGA, PLA, and a wide range of polysaccharides), naturally derived polymer excipients such as carbohydrates and biological polymers such as proteins, collagen and DNA oligomers.
