FDA Guidelines & Drug Development

Posted by Joseph Chun

Jul 17, 2018 1:00:00 PM

For any medication sold over the counter of your local drugstore to the medication you are prescribed, you can bet that all of those drugs are approved by the U.S. federal food and drugs administration (FDA). "The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and the security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, the nation's food supply, cosmetics and products that emit radiation" (FDA). Providing federal guidelines for almost everything consumed, medication is but one spectrum of what the FDA regulates.

SPRITAM, developed by Aprecia Pharmaceuticals, recently became the first FDA approved drug to be manufactured through 3D printing.  Unlike other antiepileptic drugs, which can be difficult for patients to swallow, the highly porous structure of SPRITAM allows it to quickly dissolve when taken with a sip of water.  Additionally, the 3D printed structure allows for higher dosages of medication to be delivered in a single pill.

Intrinsic Viscosity: Important for Protein Formulations

Posted by LuLu

Jul 7, 2015 2:20:00 PM

Intrinsic viscosity is an important tool in the fields of polymer and protein research. Intrinsic viscosity allows for determination of molecular weight and size more reliably than dynamic light scattering. Small sample m-VROC™ viscometer is an ideal tool to measure intrinsic viscosity of samples. The high accuracy, low sample volume requirements, and high speed of measurement ensure that data collection is fast, simple, and accurate.

ILMAC – Competence in Process and Laboratory Technology

ILMAC is a trade show that occurs once every three years.  Last month, RheoSense instruments were exhibited at ILMAC.


Switzerland is the heart of the pharmaceutical industry in Europe. ILMAC is an important gathering for Swiss pharmaceutical scientists and others from the region.


Basel is the main centre of the European pharmaceuticals and chemicals industry and the third biggest life-sciences region in Europe, employing 27,800 pharmaceuticals, chemicals and agrochemicals experts.  In Basel and the surrounding area are more than 3,500 companies and a large number universities of applied sciences.

Basel is at the heart of Europe and borders directly with France and Germany.  It is Switzerland’s second-strongest commercial region.  As an urban hub at the three-countries triangle, Basel is also internationally attractive for business and provides a unique range of cultural attractions.

We are proud to say that Basel's largest companies, Novartis and Roche, are clients of RheoSense. Both companies are just a short walk from the old town!
