Customized method development services are available to meet customer needs. MCR can provide a source for verification and measurement as products move through research and development to production.
Statistical methods are used by MCR to get unambiguous data with minimum experimental effort. We accelerate progression up the learning curve and reduce the time to market. If possible the analysis of data from an R&D environment will be done by building models (equations) from the data. In many instances those models will be useful in planning and controlling the production-scale process. MCR statistical expertise aids in the creation and development of catalysts, polymers, ceramics, biological models, medical devices, microchips and other electronic components, textiles, food products, metals and alloys, superconductors, and abrasives.
