Spectroscopy Techniques Used to Measure Skin Penetration of Antifungal Active, Ketoconazole

A new publication written in collaboration with Rutgers University, NJ, and Panjab University, India, shows, for the first time, that FTIR measurements can be used to image the transdermal penetration of ketoconazole, a widely used anti-fungal active

Dr Samuel Gourion-Arsiquaud (Director of Skin & Biosubstrates at TRI ) described these recent, exciting results and other important uses of vibrational spectroscopies in skin delivery science at a recent on-line course (January 17th to 22nd, 2022), hosted by The Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Panjab University, India, titled New Era Technologies in Formulation Design Space.
