Our first year has been an encouraging one with us now working for over 20 active clients. Our diverse areas of business activity include: chiral purification, achiral purification, impurity isolation, reference standard purification, consultancy and software coding.
Being based at BioCity
in Nottingham has played a significant role in our early success through the support provided by the team at BioCity from concept through to expansion. BioCity has provided us with the ideal environment to develop our business through the people, infrastructure and expertise in new business development. Furthermore being within an incubator site has allowed us to move into larger lab facilities in response to the increasing levels of work that we are now taking on.
The diverse range of clients we now work for have varied needs and we pride ourselves on being nimble and flexible enough to complete purification projects at speed whilst also dealing with levels that can not always be handled in-house.
We are off to a busy start in 2013, and in March, some of the team will be heading to the Bio-Europe Spring Conference
During our first year we already have collaborations in place with clients where we are considered to be the partner of choice for purification to assist their project needs.
Our vision of being a 'virtual in-house outsource partner' has already come to fruition with a number of clients. Another key development during the year has been to actively collaborate with a number of suppliers / vendors.
One such collaboration of significant value has been with instrument manufacturers Advion
, who have provided assistance with mass spectrometry instrumentation.
