Case Study: Drug Tablet Formulation
Riffyn’s Director of Science, Laura Jennings-Antipov, shows how a formulation sciences team used Riffyn SDE to improve a drug tableting process.

Analyzing tablet properties
This video illustrates how the Riffyn SDE was used in a drug tablet formulation group to pull together fragmented data sets. This allowed the customer to quickly determine which experimental variables had the largest effect on tablet integrity and ultimately improve their formulation process.
The customer’s data were fragmented across non-mineable PDF batch records, on-board instrument databases, and Excel spreadsheets stored on individual computers. The impact of their fragmented data was that experimental results were inaccessible, data files were incomprehensible to colleagues, and connections between datasets were unclear. As a result, datasets could not be pulled together for analysis, and the customer could not determine which experimental variables were having the largest impact on the quality of the tablets produced.
Laura shows how Riffyn SDE was used to pull all the data together into a globally accessible system, where it was automatically annotated, relationships between datasets were defined, and related data were automatically joined into a single, comprehensive data table ready for analysis. Using this Riffyn SDE data table, the customer was quickly and easily able to determine which experimental variables were affecting the quality of their tablets, and this information was used to improve their formulation process.
