Learn about Improved Pharma’s approach to polymorph and salt screening

Polymorph screens and salt screens are important components for drug development. The goal of polymorph screening is to try to find all possible crystal forms by small-scale crystallization and to select a stable form that can be manufactured and formulated into a dosage form. Salt screens are commonly used to alter the physicochemical properties of Read more
