Biorelevant Media

Biorelevant Media simulate the fluids present in the gut before (fasted) and after (fed) eating food. They are really useful tools for predicting what will happen to your product after it’s swallowed. Their close similarity to what's actually inside your body makes them very helpful for Pharmaceutical companies (CROs, developers, generic drug manufacturers) and also the functional food, vitamin and medical device industries. There are even versions available to mimic the gastro-intestinal juices of different animals! We supply the powders which enable you to make Biorelevant Media quickly, easily and cost effectively.

How does an amphiphilic API solubilise in biorelevant media (FaSSIF)?

Biorelevant media are becoming more and more prominent for drug solubility and dissolution testing. If you’ve ever performed these kinds of experiments you might’ve wondered how the drug interacts with the different structures formed in the media. These structures are primarily formed from the two main components of the media: bile salts and lecithins. Surprisingly,

Biorelevant Media: Medical Devices

Biorelevant media: just for drug solubility and dissolution? No sir! Use of biorelevant media is being expanded to other areas! Here we’ll go into a bit more detail about how it’s used for medical devices. Mostafalu and Sonkusale have done very interesting research using biorelevant media in an “outside the box” kind of way1-2. Initially,

What Are Dog Biorelevant Media And Why Should We Use Them?

Biorelevant Media aim to simulate the gastrointestinal (GI) tract as closely as possible. This opens a world of possibilities when it comes to testing the effect of different foods, devices, drugs and practically anything that enters the GI tract. It has proven particularly useful for drug dissolution and solubility testing, which are key tests when
