We’ve put together a series to feature the top minds in formulation development, analytical services, development, quality assurance, and converting.
Meet Tapemark’s Director of Analytical Services, Bryan Kiefat
For the past 20 years, Bryan has worked as a chemist, and for the most recent five, at Tapemark. Bryan is Tapemark's resident expert on Analytical Services.
A tip from Bryan:
"Throughout all Analytical Services, documentation is key. Here, in a highly regulated industry, there’s a lot of pressure to get things right the first time around. If you don’t document everything exactly as you do it, you won’t have traceability."
Analytical services — Finding the correct answer
Any product that comes through a lab has to be characterized, and the result has to be spot on. Analytical development and the services need to come in on projects right away.
It's critical to know what kind of methods have been started and how far they are in the process. From there, tech transfers and scaling up can happen with confidence. All products have to be characterized to achieve accurate results.
With Bryan's 20+ industry experience, he oversees the team responsible for analytical services. He and his team have a broad background from many different labs. Being exposed to many different things allows them to rely on that experience to build a high level of trust between customers by providing a positive influence and accurate data along with a robust picture on any project.
AT Tapemark, Analytical Services is more than you think
Analytical Services take place in the lab, but results don't come easy, like you may see on some CSI crime show. What we do takes hard work, a lot of review and experience to ensure what is being produced is something you can take pride in.
We always take the time to make sure what we’re doing is correct. We don't want to make mistakes. We deliver good results, and we also make sure that we meet timelines. That is most important to us. We want to make sure that any product that's brought in, that the methods that we're using to characterize are done correctly, and meet timelines.
