Organization: Aptalis
Location: Vandalia, OH

I am part of the Research & Development Analytical group and work in conjunction with the Research & Development Formulation group. I am responsible for running a battery of tests on drugs created by our formulations department. The projects I work on require different stages of development and each stage requires various testing. Those stages include, but are not limited to, the formulation stage, where the recipe for the tablet is created (and refined) and the scale-up stage, where the manufacturing process is scaled-up from small batches to very large ones.
