Analytical Sciences to Support Drug Development

The Analytical Sciences group at Bend Research supports drug development by providing analyses across the entire development process -- from feasibility testing to current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) manufacturing of clinical trial supplies. Analytical Sciences offers critical laboratory support in such diverse areas as manufacturing scale-up, testing of raw materials and final products, and cleaning verification of processing equipment.

The Analytical Sciences group works with all of the research groups at Bend Research, stepping in with their special expertise to assist with emerging challenges or opportunities. Response times are rapid, keeping projects moving to meet clients’ time frames and quality expectations.
