The higher concentrations required to reduce dose frequency in modern therapeutics often lead to high viscosity formulations. High viscosity will result on high injection forces and longer injection times that will determine the injectability of these new pharmaceutical products. Understanding the importance of viscosity and its dependence on shear rate is crucial for the proper estimation of the injection force that is necessary in the development of both manual and auto-injectors.
RheoSense’s webinar addresses how the rheological behavior of both Newtonian and non-Newtonian therapeutics can help determine injectability in the initial stages of product development.
