Crystallization monitoring and control with the Syrris Atlas HD Crystallization system
Crystallization is defined as a process by which a chemical is converted from a liquid solution into a solid crystalline state. Syrris systems offer a range of solutions to the problem of crystallization monitoring and control.
- Turbidity probe – see the Atlas HD System with optional Turbidity Probe
- FBRM probe – all Atlas systems can be integrated with the Lasentec FBRM probe for particle size analysis
- Automation – Intelligent solvent additions and temperature control are made easy with the Atlas Software allowing easy meta-stable zone analysis
- Sonocrystallization – crystallization with narrow particle size distribution and polymorph control – See the Sonocrystallisation Applications page or the Atlas HD Sonolab system
- Flow chemistry – Excellent control of mixing and temperature leads to narrow particle size distribution. See the Flow Chemistry page.
- Crystallization is the most common method of formation of pharmaceutical solids
- Usually aim to achieve goals of high purity and high yield by solely using controlled cooling crystallizations
- Almost all chemical processes utilize at least one crystallization step (either as key separation mechanism or final product engineering)
- Crystallization processes are poorly understood and are difficult to control
- Control of nucleation difficult but is the key to process control
- Physical form dictates drug product quality and effectiveness
- Process robustness governs process productivity and economics
