Containing and Enhancing Potent Particles with Micronization

A multilayered processing approach ensures safe handling and content uniformity of highly potent APIs.

Micronization is an important tool for developing new drugs, its primary advantage being that it is scalable from the early stages of development through to commercial volumes. The micronization process is both well-understood and cost-effective.

With the increased number of potent drugs in development, having the capabilities to handle and process them is becoming imperative. Development partners with the specialized expertise and infrastructure required to handle potent APIs play a key role in the supply chain of next generation medicines.
