Asia Invests in Laboratory Tools for Medicinal Chemistry
News May 01, 2006
Radleys has announced sales of its parallel chemistry and laboratory reactor products have contributed to a 400% growth in its Asian business during 2004-5 and 2005-6.
Reflecting on the spectacular business growth, Mark Radley (Managing Director) commented, "In recent years a growing proportion of our traditional pharmaceutical and biotech industry customers in Europe and North America have started to relocate part of their R&D to Asia."
"Consequently we have increased our resource allocation to the region and have seen companies including SABIC, Nicholas Piramal, Altana, GVK, Syngene, Dr Reddys, Advinus and Torrent investing in technology such as the Carousel, GreenHouse and Lara product ranges, to enable them to either win contracts from US or European pharma/biotech companies or to develop their own R&D programs."
Stereochemistry is a science of reflection. Two chemical molecules with the same composition and structure, but with one as the mirror image of the other, can produce wildly varying effects. But University of Utah chemist Matt Sigman has been developing a way to get a better grasp on this tricky field of chemistry.READ MORE
