API characterisation

Understand the compressibility properties of your materials.

Merlin offers a suite of tests, including Yield Pressure Determination using the Heckel equation, to identify the key performance characteristics of your APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients) before you start formulation.

Early identification of challenging manufacturing properties such as elasticity, poor strength and sticking will enable you to make informed choices and speed up successful formulation development.

The test can also be used to measure excipients, chemicals or mixed materials where understanding the compressibility is important.

  • Characterise new materials
  • Compare batch to batch variability
  • Assess product from different supply routes
  • Generate data for computational design or expert systems
