  • How can I support the physiochemical team during solubility determinations?
  • Is my material pure in a single crystalline form?
  • Can I use XRPD to determine stoichiometry during formulation of complexes?
  • How do I prepare XRPD data for regulatory submissions?
  • Do I need XRPD for informal or formal stability studies?
