Process Research & Development

One of MedKoo's strengths as a CRO is our ability to identify scalable processes quickly. The rapid implementation of technical packages from clients or the custom design of a new synthesis requires both good science and expert evaluation skills. Often working under very short lead times, MedKoo scientists are trained to focus efforts quickly to produce the compound of interest.


World class process R&D is fundamental to robust, reliable drug development and commercial processes. MedKoo has invested heavily and wisely in this expertise, through areas such as:


  • • Process characterization and validation
  • • Reaction optimization to reduce costs and maximize output
  • • Catalysts screening and optimization
  • • Crystallization studies
  • • Salt selection and polymorph screening
  • • API synthesis to support from GLP toxicology to clinical studies
  • • Critical process parameter assessment
  • • Impurity profiling and isolation
