Organic Chemistry Expert in Dosage Forms
An organic chemistry expert was requested for a patent infringement case claiming technology for manufacturing soft gelatin, or softgel, capsules. The patent in question claimed a method of producing pharmaceutical products in a softgel dosage form utilizing sugar alcohols to keep them soft and pliable.
IMS ExpertServices provided organic chemistry experts with strong backgrounds in sugar alcohols and, specifically, their use as plasticizers. The expert was required to have experience, training and knowledge in mass spectrometry, gas chromatography, HPLC and other chromatography analytical tools, specifically in the analysis of sugars or sugar alcohols.
Pharmaceutical Research Expert
With thirty five years of experience in pharmaceuticals research and development, this organic chemistry expert is a former lead researcher with Merck Research Laboratories who now works as a pharmaceutical industry expert consultant. He recently worked on a consultancy project involving the potential uses of plasticizers in dosage forms very similar to the case at hand. He holds a bachelor's degree in chemistry and a doctorate degree in organic chemistry. This expert has previous expert witness experience working on intellectual property matters.
