The structure of a drug substance determines the disease targets with which it can interact and thereby its therapeutic function. It is therefore critical to be able to precisely determine the molecular structure of the drug substance throughout the development process.
In addition, the most effective way of determining the accuracy of a manufacturing process is to confirm the molecular structure of the substance produced.
We use a variety of techniques for molecular structure conformation, including:
- Elemental analysis
- NMR spectroscopy
- Mass spectroscopy
- IR/UV-visible spectroscopy
- X-ray powder diffraction
- Single crystal X-ray diffraction
