High Throughput Rheological Characterization of Small Volume Biopharmaceutical Formulations
During the drug discovery process, biopharmaceutical industries produce a large number of formulations with small recipe variations. One important aspect in the development of novel drugs is the characterization of their viscosity fingerprint (i.e. viscosity dependence on shear rate, temperature…). Viscosity is a good indicator of small changes in concentration and molecular structure that play a key role in the efficacy and stability of the final product.
