Specs offers its over 25 years of compound management experience to streamline chemical compound collections of its customers. Specs' task in this is to analyze and/or process the customers' historical collection so that it can be used in their storage and retrieval systems.
Specs processes batches of compounds both on-site and off-site (at the customer's site or either Specs facilities in The Netherlands or the USA).
