Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control for Drug Development

The most successful path in developing a drug is one that not only produces a new drug substance that is safe and effective, but one that is economically manufacturable. Often the development efforts in this area, also called Chemistry, Manufacturing, and Control (CMC), are hidden by the glare coming from the glamour of pharmacological research. However, it is every bit as important to determine the most efficient method of synthesis, most effective form of delivery and most stable set of materials. All of the effort expended in drug discovery and pre-clinical research will go for naught if the product cannot be manufactured.

Dionex understands the importance of this phase of drug development and has been partnering with pharmaceutical companies, large and small, to ensure timely investigations through the use of ion chromatography (IC) and liquid chromatography (LC). From the ICS 900 to 5000 and from the UltiMate® RSLC to x2 Dual, Dionex offers the solutions that you can depend upon for reliability, flexibility and productivity.
