Posted on May 19th, 2016 by in Chemical Manufacturing Excellence


Time in the lab can be costly, so any method that helps researchers uncover solutions rapidly can be very valuable. A contract research organization (CRO) had a project for its chemists that required them to develop a series of molecules that could be used to do coupling reactions with ring systems – and the company’s business director hoped to increase revenue by getting to the answer quickly and by finding the most profitable way to charge the client.

In our ongoing ‘Alpha Moment’ series we take a closer look at how this CRO turned a research opportunity into an increased cash flow.
