Scale-up Systems Ltd. is a privately held technology company founded in 1994, owned by executives, staff and institutional investors.
The early history of Scale-up Systems is as a process consultancy organisation and innovator in software development for chemical reactions and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
DynoChem was originally developed at Zeneca in the mid-1990s by Frans Muller under the leadership of Keith Carpenter. The project was initiated because no commercially-available software existed to meet the team's requirements of:
- Multi-phase reaction modelling
- A familiar user interface that any data could be brought into quickly
- Minimizing the need to write equations so it could be used by any scientist or engineer
Following its successful application to a range of consulting and troubleshooting projects, Scale-up Systems acquired the full rights to commercialize, develop and support DynoChem in 2000.
Today Scale-up Systems is dedicated to producing the best software, training and support for the pharmaceutical and related industries to accelerate process development and to facilitate right first time scale-up and continuous improvement in API manufacturing.
An example of Scale-up Systems commitment to the pharmaceutical industry is sponsorship of the AIChE Award for Excellence in QbD (Quality by Design) for Drug Substance.
Scale-up Systems hosts a software development team at its Headquarters in Dublin, Ireland and has a global reach, with a growing team of support, training and sales personnel in North America, Europe and India.
