When a client’s molecule experienced a problem during scale up at Mike’s API facility, he did exactly what any Thermo Fisher Scientific general manager would do: he put on his lab coat and got to work. As a process chemist who spent many years in the lab himself, Mike is uniquely qualified to lead a team of API chemists, analysts, and operators. And when the situation requires it, he’s ready and able to jump in to solve complex problems like this one. And that’s exactly what they did. The cross-functional team uncovered the issue, minimized the batch waste, and gave a small company a shot at making it big.
