Forced degradation study in laboratory

Your needs: to carry out a forced degradation study on a pharmaceutical product or on an active ingredient (API) within the framework of a pharmaceutical development

A forced degradation study or stress study is a stability test that simulates the evolution of the behavior of a pharmaceutical product or an active ingredient (API).  The objective is to highlight the stability of a substance or drug over time and to observe the effects on its purity and compliance.

These forced degradation tests can be performed on active ingredients or on finished products.
