How do R&D services work?

  • Discussion

    We discuss the challenge with you. A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) can be signed if needed

  • R&D Plan

    R&D plan (experimental design) is prepared. It is specified for Your goals and adapted to Your: allocated budget, foreseen research duration, foreseen samples preparation and delivery schedule, and other needs to receive optimum results.

  • Samples

    Appropriate samples for testing are produced by the customer and sent to Lidaris.

  • Testing & Analysis

    The responses of prepared samples are tested at Lidaris. Data interpretation is performed by identifying the most critical factors and their interactions at optimal levels.

  • Update & Feedback

    Another round of optimization is performed if necessary.
