Research and Development

Astec has developed an in-house R&D capability that meets global standards. It is on the back of this strength, that new and complex molecules are synthesized, and quickly commercialized.

The head of R&D handles a team of 20 research scientists, working on various projects, across technical synthesis, new product development, formulation and cost optimization.

Analytical Capabilities:

  • HPLC
  • GLC
  • GCMS
  • Flame Photometer
  • Spray Drier
  • Particle Size Analyser
  • UV Spectrophotometer
  • Brookfield Viscometer

Process Capabilities

The company has technologically sophisticated facilities for process development work and has demonstrated its ability to synthesize complex molecules rapidly. All its laboratories are equipped to carry out reactions from gm-scale to kilo-scale (upto 20 litres).

Scale-up to multi-kilo level are undertaken at its versatile 50 liters - 500 liters capacity pilot plant.

Setting up a feasibility study, through to laboratory development, pilot scale-up and full scale production are governed by the highest safety, quality and environmental standards, all with full confidentiality.
