Deformulation is essentially product reverse engineering, during the process a formulation is broken down into its basic components characterizing, identifying, and quantifying its ingredients to discover the precise formula used in its production.

From October 14th -18th Pharmaceutical Chemists from all around the world visited McCormick Place in Chicago for the AAPS exposition. AAPS the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists event included industry leaders from the pharmaceutical industry.
Innovators, business owners, and entrepreneurs all stopped by Avomeen Analytical Services booth to discover how Avomeen, a custom testing and analysis contract laboratory, can help them with their pharmaceutical products.
The most popular topics were on Avomeen’s unique specialties, product deformulation and failure analysis services. Deformulation is essentially product reverse engineering, during this process a formulation is broken down into its basic components characterizing, identifying, and quantifying its ingredients to discover the precise formula used in its production.
This service can be invaluable for both brand name and generic pharmaceutical companies alike for performing an in-depth chemical analysis of competitor’s products at the formulation level. While use often in the pharmaceutical industry for patent infringement investigations this service is also used by manufactures within a range of industries for varying reasons.
Product failure Analysis Services was another popular topic discussed at the expedition and is essentially problem solving skills that help to prevent and/or fix product recalls. Commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry when a batch fails a quality control inspection, unknown contaminates appear within the product, the products stability & shelf life has unexpectedly altered, and when strange colors or odors appear within pills or in the container.
Pharmaceutical failure analysis services aim to identify the source of the problem and develop both a solution to fix the immediate situation as well as put new quality control procedures or steps into place to prevent similar issues from occurring again.
Other services discussed at the event included stability testing, method development and validation, material identification, competitive product analysis, new product development, and extractable & leachable testing.
Thanks to the AAPS trade show Avomeen was able share its expertise in advanced testing and analysis services to the pharmaceutical industry. Avomeen will also be exhibiting at EAS – Eastern Analytical Symposium's event November 12th through 15th at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, New Jersey.
EAS is known for being a leading community of analytical chemists which join together in search of shared knowledge and business growth. Avomeen welcomes interested parties to visit them at booth 418. Sponsors of the event include organizations including the American Chemical Society, the American Micro-Chemical Society, and the Association of Laboratory Managers.
