Understanding particle size stability and monitoring particle size changes may be vital to product success

Understanding the mechanisms by which changes to particle size occur and monitoring such changes through ongoing stability testing may be vital to the commercial success of a product. Failure to consider particle size stability in the early stages of drug development can lead to costly setbacks, batch rejection and delays in clinical trials. It is also important to consider the method used to determine particle size and to ensure that it is stability indicating.
