• Evaluation of the robustness of prototype drug product manufacturing processes.
• Analysis of solid and liquid samples for key physical and chemical properties (such as solubility, static charge, sticking potential, segregation tendency, etc).
• Accurate record keeping of the above activities using electronic databases, notebooks and document management systems.
• Calculation of derived parameters and properties from primary data.
• Scale-up and scale-down of drug product manufacturing processes using engineering models and computer simulations.
• Maintaining and calibrating complex instrumentation (such as X-ray diffractometers, Raman spectrometers, electron microscopes, tablet presses, film-coaters, etc).
