Custom Synthesis

Custom Synthesis

We specialize in mg to kg scale synthesis of complex organic molecules including active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), amino acids, peptides, scaffolds, building blocks, rare organics, and speciality fine chemicals.

Available Custom Synthesis Services

  • Compounds requiring complex multistep chemistry
  • Chiral synthesis and resolution/separation of enantiomers
  • Stable labelling (both 13C and 2H are routine) and radiolabelling/imaging precursors
  • Route development
  • Conjugation chemistry
  • Synthesis and extraction of natural products
Custom Sourcing

Chemical Sourcing

Our global supply network is second to none. We can provide access to a reliable and sustainable source of high quality products including carbohydrates, prostaglandins, natural products, APIs, and peptides.

Available Chemical Sourcing Services

  • Extraction and supply of natural products from specialist phytochemical companies
  • APIs sourced from a global network of suppliers
  • Specialized fine chemicals such as carbohydrates, nucleotides, prostaglandins, and fermentation products
  • Bulk intermediates
  • Synthesis of modified (e.g., biotinylated) and unmodified peptide chains
Custom Analysis

Chemical Analysis

We can provide complete analytical support, with comprehensive QC data packages or individual analytical techniques including multinuclear NMR, HPLC, MS, LC-MS, IR, optical rotation, and micro-analysis.
