Seqens opened a 366,00sq-ft facility in Porcheville, France to serve as the company’s center of excellence. The facility, in close proximity to Paris, will provide R&D services to clinical research in the area and customers of Seqens North America, formerly known as PCI Synthesis.

The Procheville facility will be known as Seqens’Lab will offer expanded capabilities and include a coworking space for collaborative research.  

Christophe Eychenne-Baron, group R&D director at Seqens in Paris, told us that the company wanted to bring a new approach to finding ways to accelerate internal and customer projects that gathered its commercial team, R&D direction, and project management in one place.

According to the company, it is not just a shared laboratory and R&D hub but a ‘development accelerator.’

Eychenne-Baron explained, “We came to the epiphany that we could achieve our goals by gathering into one working area all the key internal function needed to deliver on-time projects.”

He added, “We intend to learn from our new practice here and look to roll out lessons learned and best practices to the rest of Seqens’ facilities around the world.”

Seqens’Lab will provide services in its ‘recognized areas of excellence’, including: organic chemistry development, reference to two laboratories in physics and solid-state chemistry and process safety, kinetic and thermodynamic simulation tools, and large batch manufacturing capabilities for preclinical and clinical studies.
