The development of new chemistry-based products for pharmaceutical organizations requires the expertise of many experienced researchers. However, most early-stage companies are not equipped with the means necessary for successful scale-up and commercialization. And in an industry that is increasingly competitive, not having sufficient expertise and infrastructure can put you at a major disadvantage. Contracting a competent partner provides an opportunity to use internal resources more effectively, accelerate product development, and maintain operating budgets. Yet, this is possible only if the partner can provide the support you need to address scale-up and commercialization challenges and ultimately beat your competitors to market.
