Like pharmaceutics, it deals with improving the procedure of compounding and dosage of drugs, NCEs, and preparation.
Additionally, it’s instrumental in the measurement, evaluation, and optimization of values and data such as bioavailability, fabric crystallinity, bulk density, hygroscopicity, thermal properties, solubilization, stability analysis, pKa determination, etc.
PharmTech also deals with methods, techniques, devices, and instruments required to develop, manufacture, distribute (to location), store, and dispense drugs.
