Analytical techniques with a place in the oral solid dosage formulation toolkit

 Over the past two decades the empirical processes which once characterized pharmaceutical development have steadily given way to the more systematic, knowledge-led approach enshrined in Quality by Design (QbD). A QbD strategy builds quality into a product from the outset through the development of a detailed understanding of the factors that influence clinical efficacy, and of an effective control strategy for manufacture, based on the mitigation of risk. 

The starting point for pharmaceutical product formulation is an identified, active drug substance. The goal of formulation development is to incorporate this substance in a product and to develop a manufacturing process that will deliver that product securely and consistently. In QbD terms this relies on identifying the factors that will define the clinical efficacy of the product, and then learning to control the material and process attributes that will ensure consistent delivery to the resulting quality target performance profile (QTPP).
