Areas of expertise covered by the pharmaceutics information service include the application of physical, chemical and biological sciences to the formulation, design, stability, preparation and presentation of dosage forms. The pharmaceutics information service also handles enquiries about pharmaceutical packaging, especially child-resistant packaging.

Enquiries about aspects of pharmaceutics should from 7 May be made by calling the technical information service on 020 7572 2302. All questions requiring specialist pharmaceutics input will be forwarded to Dr Cable. Voicemail messages can also be left on the same number outside normal working hours.
