3 Shared warehouse storage for libraries - Compound Handling services from Specs

Cost effective shared warehouse storage by SpecsDo you think that handling compounds is a hassle? Maybe not for a few samples but a few hundreds or thousands already requires capacity and expertise that is not always immediately available. Specs, one of the world’s leading providers of compound management services, is offering a cost effective, flexible and high-end shared warehouse storage for libraries from several hundreds to millions of compounds.

Real time information on your compound repository is accessible on-line and in a secure environment. Picking, weighing, reformatting and shipping your compounds can be accomplished within 24 - 48 hours, depending on your location. We will be happy to provide you with detailed information. Our long-standing track record with several international top pharmaceutical institutions is available on request.
