Operational Model

Our operating model is designed for speed and revolves around effective project management, processes/equipment and people because we understand that early and intensive evaluation of the molecules based on thorough communications and rapid decision-making will lead to a high throughput of successful drug-like compounds.

Full Service Lab Units

The lab units are spacious with 12 fume-hoods along with an integrated engineering and central services support. The modularity of this design enables customising client-experience.

Starting Materials & Supply Chain

Our dedicated procurement team works both locally and internationally with qualified suppliers to ensure faster procurement timelines. Our services site being in the SEZ enables faster custom clearance of our materials.

IP/IT Security

Our IP security model is designed to protect IP during the project lifecycle and beyond. Key steps in this direction include the following:

  • CDA signed with all employees (if required, CDA’s can be executed directly between clients and project teams at Piramal)
  • Upfront patent assignment on MSA’s
  • Mandatory Checks to ensure IP Process adherance
