Quality is an integral part of pharmaceutical development and manufacturing which is subject to strict regulation. For example toothpastes are classified as drugs, not cosmetics, therefore as with any active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) the level of fluorides must be carefully controlled and measured accurately at different stages of production and product release. Quality also extends to the properties of excipients and other matrices (e.g. crystallinity, droplet size) which affect how API’s are released. The increased use of biopharmaceuticals (or biologics) presents additional challenges including ensuring product quality throughout the cold chain for which measurement of protein aggregation is important.

As toothpastes are classified as drugs, not cosmetics, the level of fluorides must be carefully controlled and measured accurately at different stages of production and product release.
