Improved Pharma has moved into new laboratory space in the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette IN. The new facilities are located in the Kurz Purdue Technology Center, home of the Purdue Railyard which is one of the country’s largest co-working facilities for innovators and entrepreneurs. In addition to dedicated laboratory and office space, Improved Pharma now has access to unparalleled amenities and space that is tailor-made for entrepreneurs. Improved Pharma’s private laboratory includes such techniques as DSC, IR, HPLC, UV-VIS, Dissolution, Fluorescence Microscopy, and Polarized Light Microscopy, to name a few. Improved Pharma continues to use synchrotron radiation at Argonne National Laboratory for high-end X-ray analyses.
“Opening this well-equipped lab in the Purdue Research Park will enable us to better serve our clients. Back in 1995 when we first opened our laboratory for SSCI, it spurred an incredible growth for the company and also for the science we were able to do for our clients. We look forward to continuing to help our clients bring new products to market” said Stephen R. Byrn, CSO.
