Liquidity Services Shares the Secret to Maximizing Return and Minimizing Risk When Closing a Lab

Liquidity Services- June 30, 2013

Closing a lab can be a daunting task for large and small pharmaceutical companies alike. Due to a lack of effective planning, unrealistic timelines, and inaccurate inventory records and market information, many of these organizations do not maximize return and minimize risk. They struggle to receive maximum value for their assets while remaining within a budget or upholding environmental standards.

When closing a lab, how does a company manage their teams, sort out logistics, and account for all inventory while adhering to constraints? Liquidity Services’ Tom Burton answers this question in detail in his recently published article, “Maximize Return; Minimize Risk (And Other Important Things To Consider When Closing A Lab),” in Pharmaceutical Online.
