With its roots stretching back to oil company Shell, Crystallics underpins pharmaceutical research and development by investigating the crystalline structures of drugs and potential drug compounds. LSIPR reports.
Crystallics is a company based in Amsterdam that evaluates drug ingredients for the pharmaceutical industry. It is one of a handful of companies globally that underpins pharmaceutical research and development by investigating the crystalline structures of drugs and potential drug compounds to find their optimum form. Such research can be crucial to effective patent protection when a drug comes to market.
Marcel Hoffmann, chief scientific officer at Crystallics, recommends that his firm gets involved in IP early in the research chain. Even if a pharma company has existing IP, it may not be well covered, he says.
