Pharmaceuticals and Biotech
Pharmaceuticals and biotech companies frequently use synchrotron X-rays for medical technologies including radiation and implants as well as drug research, development, and delivery systems. Small/wide and ultra-small angle X-ray scattering, pair distribution function (PDF), micro- and nano-3D tomography, X-ray fluorescence, and powder diffraction are the additional methods that pharmaceutical and biotech businesses most frequently use.
For pharma and biotech applications here are some information that synchrotron techniques could provide:
- Pharmaceutical active components and formulations are described in-situ, along with how they behave under various circumstances.
- Studying drug delivery methods using phospholipid/micellular architectures and nano-holders.
- Resolving drug formulation and crystal structures
