“Screening for crystalline forms is an essential component in pharmaceutical drug development. In our high-throughput screening workflow, we have utilized NRTL-SAC in Aspen Properties to predict the equilibrium solubility of the drug in single- and multi-component solvent systems. The predicted solubility values are used in selecting an appropriate set of solvent systems that are explicitly unique for each of the crystallization modes. This rational solvent selection coupled with the systematic screening approach has allowed us to assess risk around solid forms and improve our confidence in the robustness of the API processes.”

Jamie Hintlian, Vice President of Pharmaceuticals, Aspen Technology, Inc.
“Solubility is essential in evaluating drug candidacy and manufacturability. Without predictive tools, many organizations are forced to fly blind when it comes to this mission-critical information. Solubility modeling and prediction adds value by enabling greater efficiencies, better decision making, faster process development, and better process performance. For the pharmaceutical industry leaders involved in its development, and other potential users, this is a powerful screening protocol for the drug development process.”
