The benefits of powder characterisationWhen developing products containing spray dried powders it is vital that the physical properties of the powders produced are determined. The physical properties of spray dried powders provides important information that can assist during the pre-formulation screening and early process development phases since these properties will have a direct impact on the attributes of the final product. Testing typically falls into two categories:
- Tests that analyse amorphous/crystalline content and the propensity for moisture uptake; characteristics that will identify potential handling/product stability issues.
- Tests on particle size, morphology and powder flow properties that will impact on handling properties and aerodynamic performance of the spray dried powders.
