Process R&D

Process R&D

BOC Sciences's professional R & D team is experienced in process optimization, development of new, safe and environmentally friendly process routes. We have a complete one-stop process R&D capability to ensure smooth transfer of process technology and production scale. We make use of resources, equipment, and facilities to provide customers with satisfactory R&D services, saving customers time and costs.

About 30 years ago, "Process R&D" in the pharmaceutical industry only refers to make a chemical process scalable. With the growing awareness of the need to change and develop more efficient processes "Process Research" emerged. The effective Process R&D is important for the growth of a business as well as controlling costs. Process R&D is essential to meet the changing requirements of customers and stay ahead of competitors by introducing new and improving existing products.

Our Services

With the development of new compound synthesis methods, more technologies emerged in the field of drug discovery. A right and viable synthetic route is required for drug discovery project. With access to the latest literatures and references at reputed libraries and keeping up with latest development, our chemists are working on designing novel, economic, and scalable routes to meet customers' high demands.

The optimization of drug development and manufacturing process is increasingly important since new drugs are constantly emerging on the market. In the development of pharmaceutical chemicals, improving product yield, reducing waste and cost can be achieved by optimizing reaction conditions. Meanwhile, reaction condition optimization is helpful for bringing new chemical entities to market or extending the existing product life cycles.

Scale-up in chemical engineering means the migration of a process from the lab-scale to the pilot plant-scale or commercial scale. The goal of the chemists' work is to minimize the risks of the scale-up of chemistry routes, giving the customers the confidence that their chemicals are viable for commercial scale production.

The chemists in BOC Sciences are experienced in achieving the transformation of knowledge and methods of manufacturing from laboratory to industry. We can offer you all detailed documentation including process description, analytical methods, reports on impurities, and discussion of safety issues.
