Pharmaceutical formulation in pharmaceutics is the process in which various chemical substances including the vigorous drug are joined to produce a final medicinal product. Formulation studies involve developing a preparation of the drug which is both stable and acceptable to the patient. For orally taken drugs, this usually contains combining the drug into a tablet or a capsule. Formulations confirm that the drug is compatible with these other substances. In the pharmaceutical drug formulations, the different physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of a drug are considered so as to know what other ingredients should be used in the preparation. The various factors like polymorphism, particle size, pH, and solubility are all considered while formulating the drug, also considering the appearance of the tablet.

The drug subjected to drug development undergoes number of trials and are screened at different stages to produce a final potent drug intended for the treatment of various diseases. During this process various properties are checked to see whether the drug is non-toxic to living system and is therapeutic or not. Using suitable excipients and technological preparations the active substances are formulated into final dosage form. The last product is the Actual composition of preparation, manufacturing specification.

Bioavailability is a subcategory of pharmacological absorption. Bioavailability is generally assessed by finding the area under the plasma concentration–time curve. The factors affecting bioavailability are Pharmaceutics factors, physicochemical properties of drug, Dosage form characteristics & Pharmaceutic Ingredients, Patient related factors like age, Routes of administration (Parenteral, Rectal, Oral, and Topical)  etc.

Conducting a BA study enables assessment of the impact of route of administration on BA and defines the absolute BA of the drug released from the drug product. BA for a given formulation provides an assessment of the relative fraction of the orally administered dose that is absorbed into the systemic circulation. If the reference standard is an IV dose, it is referred as Absolute Bioavailability. If the reference standard is any other dosage form than IV it is referred as Relative Bioavailability

Analytical method development is the process of choosing an accurate assay procedure to determine the composition of a formulation. It is the process of proving that an analytical method is acceptable for use in laboratory to measure the concentration of subsequent samples Analytical methods should be recycled within GMP and GLP environments and must be developed using the protocols and acceptance conditions set out in the ICH guidelines. Analytical method development and validation stand the continuous and inter-dependent task associated with the research and development, quality control and quality assurance departments. Analytical procedures play a critical role in equivalence and risk assessment, management. It supports in formation of product-specific acceptance criteria and stability of results. Validation should establish that the analytical procedure is suitable for its intented purpose. Design of experiment is a powerful tool for the method characterization and validation

Nano medicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. Nano medicine ranges from the medical applications of nanomaterial’s and biological devices, to Nano electronic biosensors, and even possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology such as biological machines. Current problems for Nano medicine involve understanding the issues related to toxicity and environmental impact of Nano scale materials (materials whose structure is on the scale of nanometers, i.e. billionths of a meter). Functionalities can be added to nanomaterial by interfacing them with biological molecules or structures. The size of nanomaterial’ is similar to that of most biological molecules and structures; therefore, nanomaterial’s can be useful for both in vivo and in vitro biomedical research and applications. Thus far, the integration of nanomaterial with biology has led to the development of diagnostic devices, contrast agents, analytical tools, physical therapy applications, and drug delivery vehicles.
