How Chemical Manufacturing and Control (CMC) Software Helped a Major Pharmaceutical Company Improve Process Development and Regulatory Submissions Background: in 2019, a process development team at a top biopharmaceutical company. They felt data management was getting in the way of research and that too much time was spent preparing regulatory submissions. Challenge: the team wanted...

Biopharmaceuticals have boomed in recent years, with innovative researchers transforming complex biomolecules into effective therapeutics. Unfortunately, many of the common applications used by scientists do not meet the needs of this rapidly expanding R&D sector. Researchers need a chemically intelligent platform that understands the structure and properties of biochemical molecules. A vendor-neutral informatics environment will...

Imad Haidar Ahmad and colleagues at Merck present multifactorial peak crossover (MPC)—a new technique to quickly isolate peaks of interest. Using computer-assisted chromatographic modelling, the separation landscape is mapped and conditions that change peak-elution orders are found. Peaks of interest can be quickly shifted to convenient areas of the chromatogram, dramatically reducing the time spent...

Joe DiMartino spoke with Pharmaceutical Technology about the impact COVID-19 is having on the pharmaceutical supply chain and how companies can prepare for these challenges.

The knowledge generated in metabolite identification studies can provide valuable insights for intelligent drug design, and the maximum value from these studies can be harvested only if the data are stored and easily accessible within the organization. Similarly, synthetic reactions, forced degradation/stability studies, impurity identification, structural characterization, environmental stability studies and many other activities generate...
