Even slight variations in temperature, pressure, and feed ratios in the production and processing steps can affect the final polymer properties. Because of this, it is necessary to frequently test raw materials, process equipment, and the final products to ensure specifications are being met.
Polymer processing involves creating structures using polymers by changing their viscosity and rheological properties and shaping them.
There are a variety of ways to form polymers, but the equipment used mainly depends on the properties of the polymer.
All pharmaceutical products must undergo quality control (QC) to ensure that the delivered product is up to the required specifications.
Tablets are pharmaceutical products made from compressed solids. Tablets are delivered to the body through ingestion.
The overall processes to develop the three types of syrups, namely solutions, suspensions, and emulsions, are quite similar, so the general process will be described below, and differences pointed out as needed.
Pharmaceutical sprays are medicines that are administered orally or nasally through respiration.
Semi-solid pharmaceuticals can be divided into creams, gels, and ointments.
Injectables are sterile liquid drug products that are injected into the bloodstream.
Capsules use a gelatin barrier to deliver the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and additional inactive ingredients to the body.
