Peter Ouma Okeyo, who is a Postdoc in Professor Anja Boisen’s research centre IDUN at DTU Health Tech, has headed the development of a new method that is called Particle Mechanical Thermal Analysis (PMTA). PMTA bypasses the barrier described above, by using the drug material itself as a MEMS device. Hereby, it is possible to do analysis directly on a single particle of drug. This means that any impurities that may have been in the larger bulk of material that is needed for standard methods can now be filtered out and the analysis will can be done more accurately on a pure drug particle.
