Services I Services & Capabilities
The development of chemical processes takes place across a range of scales, and it is important to understand the key project attributes from the outset so that a phase-appropriate development can be undertaken.
At HFR, our dedicated R&D team are able to get involved at project inception and undertake initial route scouting with a view to generating milligram to gram quantities of target compounds.
Our transition up to 30 L means we can ultimately generate low kilogram quantities of material, using a tried and tested approach which de-risks and adds value wherever possible.
With an overarching aim of Quality Manufacture, our process research and development activities involve a pragmatic approach depending upon what is critical to your project.
Speed and efficiency is key during the initial route scouting phase so that materials are generated in a time-dependant manner.
The correlation between process parameters and reaction outcome is probed during the development and optimisation phase, allowing for a much deeper understanding around a particular chemical event. Key to this phase of work are strong analytical capabilities and an attention to detail, as an understanding of process impurities becomes critical.
With the aim of generating a proof-of-concept batch, scale up is undertaken in a safe and cost-effective manner, with the ultimate aim of delivering a robust, reproducible and reliable process.
