AstraZeneca R&D, Pharmaceutical development, Chemical Science, Sweden
Chemovix originates from a group within Chemical Science, Pharmaceutical Development,  with the purpose to deliver laboratory automation to scientists within the department. Chemical Science was formerly known as Process R&D and its main objective was to deliver scalable processes for manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and to support all clinical trials with the materials required.
The automation group was set to deliver easy workflows for chemists and engineers to use in their everyday job in the laboratories. The target was to become more efficient and effective, reduce unwanted variation and let the machines do the job!
The automation suite of soft- and hardware has been deployed in more than 130 laboratory facilities both in Sweden, the UK, and India. 
Work extending from 2003 to 2012.
