Notice regarding COVID19:

During this extraordinary period DANNALAB remains operational and delivers all orders without delay.

The SAXS methodology is successfully used at DANNALAB to analyze the structure of nano-particulates in solution, including viral components in biological media like serum.

Our lab offers free initial evaluation for any projects directed to fighting COVID19. Please contact us to receive more information on how we can assist your project.

GMP XRPD and SAXS Characterization of Pharmaceuticals

DANNALAB is an independent contract research laboratory that specializes in physico-chemical studies of pharmaceuticals. Our core expertise relates to X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD) and Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS).


X-Ray Powder Diffraction (XRPD) to Study Polymorphism and Crystallinity according to USP 941 and Ph.Eur. 2.9.33

At DANNALAB we use XRPD to identify the polymorphic type and crystallinity of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in its pure form, as well as in formulation or dosage forms. We support our customers during research, pre-formulation and formulation stages. Among our services, we offer GMP method development and validation for identification and quantification. The methods we offer are developed according to USP <941>, Ph.Eur. <2.9.33> and ICH guidelines. For quality control during the batch release we offer affordable cGMP XRPD with a turnaround time of 3 to 6 days. Our facility and procedures are compliant with the cGMP quality system.


Small Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) to Study Drug Delivery Vehicles and Biologics

We use SAXS to study internal structure of drug delivery systems - such as liposomes and nanoparticulates. We also use SAXS to study the higher-order structure of biologics, their aggregation pathways, and their stability patterns. You can find more information on our drug delivery and biopharmaceuticals pages.


Express XRPD Quality Control During Batch Release

We offer affordable cGMP XRPD for quality control with a turnaround time of 3 to 6 days.


Technology Transfer

If you want to establish in-house GMP XRPD or SAXS methodology we offer technology transfer solutions.


Pharmaceutical Patents

To ensure effective and safe intellectual property management, we offer a range of services related to pharmaceutical patents.


What We Can Do For You

Please contact DANNALAB if:

  • - You need an outsourcing partner for quality control during the batch release
  • - Your R&D project requires X-Ray analytical support (we may be able to help in non-trivial cases)
  • - You need an in-depth physico-chemical characterization of your drug substance or product
  • - You need an independent study related to intellectual property (pharmaceutical patents)
  • - You need to investige a deviation in your pharmaceutical production process
