HOW CAN I MANAGE THE COST OF AN IMAGING-BASED ASSAY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM?
Project Length Long-term projects (6 months or longer) enable us to spread the cost of reagents and materials over a longer period and maximize usage of project-specific materials that might otherwise be partially used in a shorter project. Operationally, longer-term projects enable us to assign resources on a recurring basis reducing project management costs and assuring that progress updates and data are delivered on a routine basis.
We routinely work with new clients and the vast majority come back to us for follow-up projects. Typically, a small focused pilot project is performed to make sure that both parties are completely happy working with each other. After the pilot phase most clients work with us to plan out a longer more strategic relationship that includes regular milestones. We work with a wide variety of companies that often have different financial preferences, we’re flexible and try to accommodate these wherever possible.
