In the Best Possible Taste – Accelerating Formulation Development and Delivering More Reliable Results using electronic tongues

Given the inherently bitter taste of many active pharmaceutical ingredients, a key challenge for developers is how best to use flavorings and taste-masking technologies to make oral dosage forms taste more pleasant. With traditional methods of assessing taste suffering from a number of important limitations around variability and efficiency, could the use of electronic tongue technology offer a more effective solution?

In this article featured in Manufacturing Chemist, Dr Detlev Haack (Director of Research and Development) and Dr Martin Koeberle (Head of Analytical Development and Stability Testing) discuss:

  • Why taste development is important to meet modern consumers’ expectations and differentiate products in the marketplace
  • The key factors to consider when designing great tasting pharmaceutical products
  • How electronic tongues can overcome the ethical and variability challenges associated with traditional taste assessment
  • How electronic tongue technology can accelerate formulation development and deliver more reliable results
