Solubilization enhancement and emulsification

More and more drugs in development exhibit low solubility. Therefore, poorly soluble drugs are one of the major challenges pharmaceutical manufacturers are facing. Self-emulsifying drug delivery is one option enhance solubility and bioavailability for lipophilic drug. BASF offers a comprehensive range of high quality solubilizers, lipids and solvents for this challenge. Finding the right combination of emulsifier, co-emulsifier and solvent for a self-emulsifying drug delivery system has been traditionally a trial and error approach; BASF can offer high throughput screening tools in order to speed up formulation time.

Crystallization inhibition for enhanced bioavailability

Crystallization inhibition is an important factor to maintain drug solubility and bioavailability out of solid and liquid dosage forms in particular. Before it can be adsorbed, recrystallization can happen at any point in time after formulation, during storage or administration, causing bioavailability to plummet and a consequent loss of medication efficacy. BASF offers a range of well established crystallization inhibitors that ensure that your drug will not get lost on its way to the point of action in the body, i.e. our low molecular weight povidones Kollidon® 12 PF and Kollidon® 17 PF or our Kollicoat® MAE 100-55.
