Within the scientific community there is always a strong flow of 'word of mouth'. Throughout the 16 months in business Reach Separations has benefitted from this form of extremely effective marketing. From the comments that have eventually returned to us through our network it's clear we have added value in the following areas:
- Our expertise has been essential in solving a number of challenges.
- Rapid turnaround time.
- Coverage of techniques, instrumentation and columns.
All are cornerstones to an effective outsource partnership.
From the feedback we have received or heard of one particular benefit has been of significant value. At times we have completed and returned a purification project quicker than the client would have been able to in-house.
As news of our position/offering in the market place has spread, so has our 'reach'. We now have European clients who expect a high level of service, specifically in turnaround time. So we've adapted to the need!
Recently we received a request to purify enantiomers from 7g of a racemate. The client was based in Germany.
- Sample arrived on Thursday.
- Screened and method ready by early Thursday afternoon.
- Purification completed by Monday evening.
- Dry down, appropriate packaging and collection completed by Tuesday lunch time.
- Collected by the courier and air freighted arriving in Germany on Wednesday afternoon.
- Back in the clients lab on Thursday morning.
We have put considerable effort into the efficiency of our turnaround from a logistical point of view. We have taken time to understand the legislation of transporting hazardous materials. We have ensured that we package in accordance to the appropriate regulations. Selecting a suitable courier was well researched.

Med Chem, Mozzies, and the Midnight Sun
Our BDD recently attended The 6th Anglo-Swedish Medicinal Chemistry Symposium in Sweden. The venue, when eventually found by the taxi driver, was beautiful lakeside hotel/retreat about an hour from Stockholm. The conference was well attended by many leading Pharma and CRO organisations across Europe, Asia and North America.
Being hosted at a remote venue there was plenty of good conversation and networking opportunities as the whole delegation had nowhere to escape to. This was a key factor to a very successful meeting and it was good to be involved in conversations that centred on what had been presented during the day.
Leaving the bar at midnight was slightly disconcerting and rather hazardous. Although the sun was not quite visible there was plenty of light to stagger back to the room in. Dodging the local insect wildlife was also quite important. Mosquitoes in this area of Scandinavia need to have the ability to pierce Moose hide. Thus our BDD was slightly peppered on his return to the UK.....bite count 34!!
