The physico-chemical properties of the materials have a strong impact on the performance of the entire container system. Container performance analysis embraces a diverse range of investigative fields, such as material, chemical, physical, mechanical engineering. Accurately testing the container performance (product/use-dependent) maximizes drug efficacy as well as device reliability and performance.

Our experts can assist you with selecting the right components, optimizing your device to improve performance with an existing container, compendial testing, as well as support in method development and validation of non-standard testing.
