Analytical Support Services

Piramal Discovery Solutions (PDS) is a reputed service provider for mg to gm scale discovery chemistry. We have partnered with a range of well known pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies from Europe, USA and Japan.

In vitro facilities at PDS provide ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion) services to provide faster and improved decision making points for our Chemistry clients or standalone offering to support drug discovery programs.

Piramal’s fully-equipped kilo-lab allows for rapid development of scalable and robust chemical processes using advanced process methodologies to provide a quick supply in the early phase of the development.

When you send PDS your chemistry work, you want to be assured that the allocated chemist(s) are fully focussed on the delivery of your chemistry. PDS achieves this through our “High Speed Delivery” process, a core element of which is our analytical support.

Great!
