With an aging population to it must minister to, the pharmaceutical industry is expanding at a rapid pace. Pharmaceutical companies come up daily with new ways to produce effective drugs, with minimal side effects for the patient. In this context, the development and manufacturing of drugs must follow rigorous procedures. The surface analytical techniques to evaluate new biomolecules or identify contaminants then become necessary tools to ensure the quality of these developments.
