Process improvement We bring understanding of practical realities, viability and the potential non-linearity of scale up to the optimisation of chemical processes. Within our own laboratories, we are able to design and produce optimal processes for scaling up production from milligrammes to hundreds of grammes reliably. We ensure all compounds meet the required quality and purity. We also use our detailed knowledge of products and processes to inform handover to pilot production, helping to anticipate and resolve any scale up problems before they occur. In some cases, it may involve re-inventing the chemistry, in others it is a question of optimising the processes with an eye to commercial viability, safety and environmental issues and material availability.
