I am a Research Scientist working for a pharmaceutical company that is located very close to Oak Crest. Oak Crest has been helpful to us in many ways in providing analytical instrumentation (NMR, Partical Countet etc.). I found their research and administrave staff to be diligent, knowledgeable and always willing to provide extensive help which I believe most of the organization will no do.
