Organic Chemistry & Synthesis
All essential components for early drug discovery such as synthesis of chemical intermediates, process impurities, reference compounds, drug metabolites, and pro-drug; lead generation and optimization; bioconjugate chemistry; targeted molecules for MRI and others Molecular Imaging techniques.
ANALYTICAL SERVICES FOR SYNTHESIS PROJECTS:
Our variety of technique and instrumentation ensures the quality, reliability, swiftness and confidentiality of the synthesized molecules.
GEM FORLAB Analytical Services allows performing the chemical analysis needed to characterize in house the synthesized compounds.
Our discovery analytical and purification team provide high quality analytical and separation services. Products can be purified to high purity with our preparative chromatographic systems, including reverse phase and normal phase chromatography using up to 2 Kg of silica gel.
Furthermore we perform the isolation of Impurities from starting materials, intermediates, APIs and drug products using various techniques, including:
- Gel Permeation/Gel Filtration (SEC)
- Polymeric Stationary Phase (e.g. Amberlite XAD1600)
- Ion Exchange Resin Purification (SAX, SCX, WAX, WCX)
- Flash Chromatography Automatic System (e.g. Biotage)
GEM FORLAB delivers high quality compounds: chemical purities >95% by LC-MS and NMR controls.
GEM FORLAB offers custom synthesis services to support many different industries.
Our team provides organic synthesis of compounds at the milligram to hundreds grams (500 g) scale in our labs.
