3/10/2020 14:30 - 15:05

  • Drug product development is currently based on empirical methods; the process can be time-intensive, costly, and has a high risk of failure
  • BASF has developed a science-based formulation prediction system that enables formulators to develop robust drug formulations
  • The assistant identifies the most promising drug-excipient combinations and calculates a starting formulation
  • The number of time-consuming and costly lab experiments is significantly reduced; the risk of failure is reduced at early stages
