Why particles size is important in pharmaceutical industry and how to get the required particle size?

In the pharmaceutical industry, particle size has become one of the key aspects inthe development of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and qualitycontrol of solid oral dosage forms. The physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties of biologically active substance can be highlyaffected by crystal size and its distribution (CSD), also called as particle size distribution (PSD). According to thelatest scientific reports, it is estimated that almost 80% of new promising molecules having biological activity are rejected during the research and development process due to the low water solubility what is strongly related tothe bioavailability and release of the drug. Polpharma API has many years of experience in delivering APIs with the right particles size distribution through crystallization, milling/micronization, vibration sieving or other technologies.
