Essential Groundwork for any Compound
We have, for example, reduced the number of steps in one process from 11 steps to three steps. This brought the cost of goods below the target of $7,500 per kg, from a starting point of over $500,000 per kg, not to mention the shortened time cycles to prepare the API. On many occasions, we have been able to fix a process and deliver material, where other custom synthesis companies were not able to. This resulted in those programs being re-vitalized. In some cases that has resulted in the program becoming an acceptable licensing candidate, resulting in multi-tens of million dollar licensing fees for our client.
