Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) is a substance used in a finished pharmaceutical product (FPP), intended to furnish pharmacological activity or to otherwise have direct effect in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease, or to have direct effect in restoring, correcting or modifying physiological functions in human beings. The aforementioned API is the primary ingredient. Other ingredients are commonly known as "excipients" and these substances are always required to be biologically safe, often making up a variable fraction of the drug product. Because of APIs' intended use, it is highly important that these APIs meet strict quality and purity standards. In addition, APIs analysis also can help manufacturer understand product performance, find reasons for product performance degradation and quality monitoring, improve product, as well as imitate production.
As a global leading pharmaceutical analysis services company, Alfa Chemistry provides active pharmaceutical ingredients analysis and other preformulation analysis services. Alfa Chemistry is the perfect partner for getting expertise, flexibility, and reliability with your pharmaceutical formulation project.
Alfa Chemistry's advanced instrument platforms and services:
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrophotometer (FTIR): Determine the identity of the API to ensure package the correct chemical.
Ultra Violet/Visible Light Spectrophotometer (UV/Vis): Determine the identity of a specific API and it's purity.
Identification by Chemical Reactions: Determine whether an API is its base or its related salt.
Identification by Flame: Similar to the chemical reaction, determining if an API is its base or its salt. Some elements like sodium impart a specific color flame when burned.
High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC): Further ensure the identity of an API and precisely and accurately determine its purity and potency.
Gas Chromatograph (GC): Ensure the identification, purity, and potency of an API.
Thin Layer Chromatography: Determine the identification and qualitative purity of an API.
Titrations: Stoichiometrically determine the exact potency of the API.
