Our process begins with a simple phone call or email, depending on your preferences. We do require an NDA to be signed prior to any discussion. After this initial discussion, our team will decide if we’re the best choice to assist you in reaching your project goals. If so, we’ll draft a proposal and scope of your project. If you agree with the proposal, a full project proposal will be created complete with:

  • Objectives
  • Budget estimate
  • Detailed experimental strategy
  • Complete activity and timeline
  • Detailed analysis

When you work with Chempilots, you’re in control of your involvement. From being part of your project’s research and development to allowing us to work on our own with little to no interaction, it’s up to you. It’s all part of the Chempilots Difference.
