Cresset Launches CompChem on Demand
Cresset has launched a new service program that will enable scientists to outsource computational chemistry work at a high value daily rate. With the introduction of CompChem on Demand, Cresset’s services division will now provide computational chemistry services on a daily basis, without requiring a long-term project commitment.
The program allows customers to pre-pay for flexible service days, in return for which they receive a discount on the daily rate.
Customers may then arrange to use the services as the need arises, providing the flexibility often needed to accommodate critical requirements and short turn-around times, whilst dealing with limited budgets and ever-evolving projects.
Dr Martin Slater, Director of Consulting, will head the program, bringing almost 15 years of experience in the highly dynamic pharmaceutical ‘fee for service’ environment to customers in need of computational expertise.
Dr Slater’s team has a variety of skills including library design (large and small libraries), lead optimization and SAR analysis.
The services provided will make use of commercially available Cresset software where applicable, but will also benefit from Cresset’s in-house non-commercialized code and applications which can be used to solve unique problems.
“Increasingly, the financial reality of Drug Discovery projects demands that scientists be able to minimize costs whilst simultaneously maximizing throughput and efficiency” said Dr Robert Scoffin, CEO of Cresset.
Dr Scoffin continued, “Through utilizing our powerful and flexible on-demand consulting service offerings, customers are able to match their scientific needs much more closely to their financial situation.”
Cresset is offering the CompChem on Demand program at a low introductory rate until the end of the year, although service days may be used at any time, up to a full year from the date of purchase.
