“Tanabe Research Labs utilized Kasai consulting for our on-site safety and compliance issues and to help us manage our change over from a small molecule site to a biologics organization. They helped us with the daunting logistics of decommissioning the lab, and were instrumental in resolving all of the licensing issues to include radioactivity, DEA, county and state regulatory agencies.

Kasai performed at a very high professional level providing knowledge and strategic insights that helped us to focus our resources on the projects at hand rather than on the support functions Kasai took over. This allowed us to make significant scientific advances.  I highly and without reservation recommend Kasai Consulting and will certainly use Kasai Consulting in my next company.”
