Pharmaceutical crystallization


Crystallization is a key unit operation and an important step in processing and development within the pharmaceutical industry, and it is used in the separation and purification of intermediate compounds and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). Over 80% of drug products involving at least one crystallization step.
