Formulation development is a process used by pharmaceutical companies in order to come up with the best compositions for a new product. The formula is developed using very high tech equipment and scientific processes. Formulation development can be the process of adding or removing components in order to determine if a product will be effective.
One company, KBI Biopharma, has committed themselves to finding the best formulas available. They have determined that the best way to create new formulas is to use a series of proteins. They will add or remove specific amounts of proteins in a product to determine if it is a viable product with merit. Their biggest concern is making sure that the product that is formulated will be stable. They use fluorescence spectroscopy as one of their many tools in creating formulas. Another concern that they are always thinking about during development is interactions that may occur during different phases. Continue reading
