WEST CHESTER, Pa. (November 13, 2012) — The life science services sector is growing rapidly in Asia as global pharmaceutical companies outsource work in an effort to reduce costs and move medicines to market faster. Following this market dynamic, Chiral Technologies has responded by expanding its capabilities for medium-to-large scale custom separation services in China and India.
“The demand for value-added separation services in Asia is higher than ever as more global pharmaceutical companies outsource their drug discovery studies to this region,” said Dieter Heckmann, CEO of Chiral Technologies. “Chiral Technologies looks forward to assisting new and current global customers with their custom separation projects, small to large, in order to facilitate a faster and more economical path to clinical trials and commercial development.”
