Salt selection screening is a step that cannot be overlooked either for enhancing the solubility of your API, or make up for the obtaining of an amorphous solid, or even to broaden the solid phases in your portfolio and therefore lock up your intellectual property.

Background of the study

We investigate on known data and, when necessary, we can perform a preliminary study in order to optimize the parameters to be studied during the screening process (e.g. measurement of solubilities, crystallization of the free acid/base, study of a specific counter-ion, ...). We can then direct the choices towards the most appropriate crystallization processes and build DOE accordingly.


We offer 3 different packages to fulfill your needs:

  • Focused
  • Extended
  • Custom-built


- limited number of parameters
- to get an insight of the solid phases
- affordable,
- rapid answer, swift access to the next development stage


- maximum number of counter-ions
- maximum number of appropriate crystallization parameters
- defined protocols and design of experiments


- based on your specifications, or
- joint development of crystallization protocols (temperature cycles, evaporation...) and experimental designs


Each sample is analyzed by powder X-ray diffraction, which allows to maximize the data collected within the time lapse. Most promising candidates can be further analyzed. Analytical and experimental data retrieved during the screening process enable you to choose the "final candidates".

What you get

A screening of solid phases generates a huge amount of data. However raw data are just ... raw data. At the end of the study, Holodiag provides a high quality report: it is not just a compilation of analyses but an interpretation of the results, a highlight of the key points together with advices, and also an open discussion with our scientists.

And now ?

If the results from the screening process do not allow to narrow down the list of candidates or if you need additional data, we perform post-screening studies on stability (thermodynamic/statistic), solubility, ... You can then choose the most appropriate phase(s) according to the characteristics needed. When your best candidates have been selected, we can scale-up the process from few dozen of milligram up to the kilo lab.
