This webinar will give an overview of how APIs, excipients and formulations can be investigated by DSC (differential scanning calorimetry) and TGA (thermogravimetric analysis, sometimes in combination with a gas analysing system).
Presenting the webinar will be Gabriele Kaiser, who will explain the attributes and functions of DSC and TGA – the most widely used thermal analytical methods for investigating pharmaceuticals.
For example, DSC is well suited to measure phase transformations such as melting, crystalization or glass transition. This is important for studying polymorphism phenomena as well as interactions between the components of a physical mixture.
In addition, TGA detects mass losses quantitatively and is ideally suited for compositional analysis – or for revealing thermal stability regions of pharmaceuticals. Coupled to a gas analysing system it is additionally possible to identify the gas species evolved from a sample during heating.
This webinar has been designed to be especially useful for laboratory personnel, laboratory managers and project managers working in R&D and QC.
