Overcoming Productivity Challenges in High Throughput Experimentation

For scientists involved in pharmaceutical development, high throughput experimentation is commonplace for activities such as reaction optimization, process development, catalyst screening, and reaction scale-up. While there are many observed benefits of implementing HTE workflows in laboratories, it also dramatically affects corporate informatics infrastructures and there are significant impediments to its utilization. In order to optimize laboratory efficiency and support the lab of the future, the industry requires a technological solution that can help streamline workflows and demonstrate data integrity. That's why we've recently launched Katalyst D2D to solve the industry’s greatest pain points in HT experimentation. Read on to learn more about our new solution for high throughput experimentation and parallel synthesis. Read more →
