IMAGE-BASED CHARACTERIZATION – Non-Invasive, Quantitative Characterization of Lyophilized Drug Product Using Three-Dimensional X-Ray Microscopy Analytics

Shawn Zhang, PhD, Johnathan Goldman, PhD, Xiaodong Chen, PhD, et al present a new method that not only characterizes quantitatively the microstructures of the lyophilized drug samples, but also presents the potential to correlate the microstructures with physical properties to optimize parameters in drug formulation, cycle development, process scale-up, stability control, and administration.
