Our people love your data
Material Sciences (SaaS)
Material science in the pharmaceutical industry is not just a matter of finding the right materials and suppliers. It is also a matter of living up to increasing standards by regulatory bodies. Having material data readily available will aid this process.
Making sense of the materials
Material Science is a vital cog in drug development, dealing with a fundamental understanding of physicochemical properties of all constituents and their behavior in diverse environments. Most drug products consist of multiple materials with unique properties which change depending on the environment. Creating stable drug products requires knowledge of all these properties. Naturally, this knowledge is available in the pharma industry. But we find that getting to the knowledge takes up valuable time. Fortunately, Global Value Web can streamline this process.
Our Material Science Data Management Services
GVW’s Material Science as a service is a value chain enabler that caters to both Chemistry and Manufacturing Controls (CMC) and product life cycle management (LCM) that encompasses (but not limited to) the following functional aspects:
Material Database Creation
We create material databases per function, specific to your product development needs.
Exploring available technologies in literature (academic publications, patents, monographs, white papers, databases, etc.) and coming up with a client-centric work product that enables end-user to make informed decisions
Material grade evaluations
Providing a detailed study on the structure-property relationship between drug molecules and excipients as well as from a regulatory standpoint that helps clients in excipient selection and qualification
Technical Management of Materials
In the increasingly complex world of the pharmaceutical supply chains, MSaaS at GVW has the right technical expertise to manage sourcing, evaluation, qualification, and management of materials as per the demands of the entire drug product life cycle. We ensure quality through rigorous scientific evaluation along with proactive risk mitigation in purchasing decisions via market intelligence, channeling procurements from multiple sources, and timely effective communications.
Technical Writing for Analytical Support
Currently, we provide data-driven Extractable and Leachable risk assessment reports for all the materials used during manufacturing with an in-depth risk analysis of the compounds or elements identified. Based on the extractable data, container selection of the finished product is suggested.
Advanced Characterization strategies
Designing material-specific advanced characterization protocols and driving new material qualification
Quality by Design and Six Sigma Approaches
Extending GVW’s quality services further to the advanced technologies in material science through Quality by Design (QbD) and Six Sigma approaches – Design of experiments (DOE) for formulation, process optimization and advanced characterization throughout the product development lifecycle
Creation and management of materials per functionality database
Benefit from Insights from Around the World
Global Value Web is an international organization with branches in various countries. Our experts combine knowledge from around the globe and collaborate with clients to make those insights work for them. We supercharge development of current products and processes through data accessibility and the shared knowledge of GVW Value Partners.
Feel free to ask us any questions you might have. Srinidhi is happy to tell you more about our Material Science as a Service.
Dr. Srinidhi Ramachandra
Network of Excellence Leader – Science as a Service
Dr. Srinidhi is a Chemist and a Material Scientist by training with a master's degree in Chemistry from Bangalore University in India and a Doctoral degree in the field of Nanomaterials from the University of Twente, The Netherlands. He has joined GVW to be a part of the exciting new journey at that is Material Science as a Service providing solutions to our multinational pharmaceutical clients.
The biggest problem with data is that it is scattered across organizations, divisions and departments. That is a shame, because unless it is shared, data can never reach its full potential. That is where Global Value Web comes in. We gather data from internal and external sources and use this data to provide you professionals with the numbers and figures that they need. With all this data, readily available, your organization can run more efficiently, save costs and gain valuable insights, for now and for the future.
