An Independent Consultant Serving
the Writing, Marketing and Educational Requirements of the Analytical Science Community
In todayís world of downsizing, consolidation and mergers, outsourcing services is becoming the accepted way of completing projects at a cost-effective price. Whether itís analytical services, information technology, marketing communications, market analysis, human resources, accounting or training personnel, outsourcing for many organizations has been a natural progression, because it is an opportunity to add resources without having to hire someone on a full-time basis. Also many companies and large consulting firms donít have the infrastructure or expertise to address the issues internally or they might just want someone for a short-term project who has a particular skill that they are lacking.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the analytical and scientific communities. Many organizations are now using analytical services supplied by a third party, so they donít have to go through the expense of setting up their own analytical laboratory. And even if they do have their own laboratory, they might need to hire outside consultants to ensure that their staff understand the application problem and are fully trained to run some of the more complex analytical instrumentation in their laboratory.
In addition to the practical side of running a laboratory, many organizations like research institutions, contract laboratories, hospitals, universities, federal departments, biotechnology and instrumentation companies, need to market their services and products to the marketplace. If the organization doesnít have any in-house marketing expertise, the traditional approach has been to use advertising agencies, marketing groups or graphic designers who have no feel for the technical nature of a project. Besides the problem of trying to convey fairly complex scientific facts to non-technical people, who think with the other side of their brains, the cost of these projects can often consume an organizationís marketing budget.
No one understands these issues better than SCIENTIFIC WRITING SOLUTIONS. Itís principal consultant, Robert Thomas, has 20 years experience in applications, product development, sales marketing and technical writing for the Inorganic business division of a major analytical instrument company, 12 years experience as an analytical chemist and 10 years as a freelance writer. This has given him an in-depth knowledge of trace element techniques, like AA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS and a detailed understanding of how the analytical community utilizes these techniques to solve their problems. He has also spent much of that time writing about the real-world applicability of these techniques. His publications in the magazines/journals, ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, TODAYíS CHEMIST AT WORK, SPECTROSCOPY, LC/GC, MICRO, and SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING exemplifies his knowledge on this subject. He has broadened his writing scope to other subject matter in the life sciences and biotechnology arenas as exemplified by his articles in MODERN DRUG DISCOVERY, PHARMAGENOMICS and SPECTROSCOPY. More recently he has been seen in the prestigious petrochemical/industrial magazines, HYDROCARBON PROCESSING, PRACTICING OIL ANALYSIS, LASER FOCUS WORLD and PLANT ENGINEERING
