Pharmaceuticals

Modern healthcare depends on strict quality control and analyses determining identity and concentrations of active ingredients, impurities, raw materials, counterions and other excipients in pharmaceutical formulations. Diduco contributes by providing reliable products and developing new methods following the ICH guidelines.

Food & Beverage

Ensuring that water, juice, beer, wine and other beverages, dietary supplements and food ingredients, contain low levels of contaminants and are safe to eat, but include the stated amounts of nutrients, is of primary concern to ensure a healthy life for people. 

Energy & Electronics​

Producing and storing energy in an efficient, reliable and sustainable manner is a monumental challenge for mankind. In energy plants and battery electrolytes it is therefore important to monitor contaminants and degradation products, since they are likely to affect the productivity, safety and duration of the systems.

Analysis of dietary supplement capsules with carnitine using a generic method for counterions

Oral L-carnitine is a dietary supplement that has been shown to reduce fatigue in elderly people with low muscular endurance, but its effects on athletes during physical activity are not well-supported. Although this endogenous compound is well-known for its involvement in the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids, no scientific evidence has been found that carnitine in isolation enhances fat-burning.

Foscarnet assay calibration with XAMS suppressor and ASUREX-A200
ion chromatography

Modernized assay for foscarnet following ICH guidelines

New assay for the antiviral medication forscarnet which is a DNA polymerase inhibitor that is used to combat herpes viruses, including drug-resistant cytomegalovirus, and to treat patients with HIV as part of salvage therapy. This assay was developed by Diduco to meet the requirements in the ICH guidelines, as a contribution to the United States Pharmacopoeia initiative for modernized monograph methods.

Analysis of clodronate related substances according to European Pharmacopoeia monograph

Official quality control method for the first-generation bisphosphonate clodronate, which inhibits bone resorption and is used to treat bone weakness or pain caused by cancer that has spread to the skeleton. This analysis was performed according to the European Pharmacopoeia monograph method which is used to determine related substances that could be present as impurities in the active ingredient.

Pharamaceutical counterions with XAMS suppressor and ASUREX-A200
ion chromatography

Generic method for isocratic separation of fifteen common pharmaceutical counterions

Many medicines and dietary supplements are bases that carry a positive charge, and these small molecules are consequently accompanied by negatively charged counterions. Such anionic excipients may influence the properties of the pharmaceutical formulation and can also influence the effect of the active ingredient since different ion pairs can have different dissolution rates or abilities to penetrate cell walls.

Alternative method for voriconazole impurity E
ion chromatography

Alternative method for determination of voriconazole impurity E

Voriconazole is an antifungal medication that is included on the WHO Model list of Essential Medicines. During synthesis of the active ingredient a resolving agent for chiral amines is often used, and it is thus necessary that the quality control prove that this substance is not present at harmful levels in the final product.

HILIC

Separation of nucleosides and nucleobases

Being one of the basic components of all cells as building blocks of DNA and RNA, there is a high and growing need for bioanalytical methods to determine nucleosides, nucleobases and related compounds in a variety of samples. Hydrophilic interaction chromatography is one of the most suitable approaches for this, due to the hydrophilicity of these compounds as demonstrated by their negative logP and logD values.

Generic method for isocratic separation of ten common pharmaceutical counterions

Many medicines and dietary supplements are bases that carry a positive charge, and these small molecules are consequently accompanied by negatively charged counterions. Such anionic excipients may influence the properties of the pharmaceutical formulation and can also influence the effect of the active ingredient since different ion pairs can have different dissolution rates or abilities to penetrate cell walls.
