At Ardena, we help you to gain knowledge of your compound’s crystal structure at atomic level and characterise its intermolecular interactions.
This helps us to obtain a wealth of information crucial for absolute configuration (enantiomers), phase identification, quality control, process development and patent protection.
Our crystallography services include X-ray diffraction, which is widely recognised as the most reliable tool for the analysis of pharmaceutical solids and crystal form identification.
Availability of a single crystal of the drug substance is preferred due to the speed and accuracy of the structure determination. However, it is not always possible to obtain a crystal of suitable size for data collection. In those cases, Ardena can solve the crystal structure from X-ray powder diffraction data. We also offer X-ray powder diffraction measurements at ambient conditions and/or at variable temperature or humidity.
