Leave it to us: Synthesis and process development for pharma and industry.

Reliable success. Analytical precision. Supporting your business.

Custom development of syntheses, processes and APIs

As experts in synthesis and process development, as well as the development of pharmaceutical APIs, we will be at your side from day one. We provide effective support – with know-how resulting from 80 years of experience and our highly qualified and committed employees.

R&D – Research and process development

We offer a wide range of services in research and process development, even for very early project phases. We develop a synthesis for your target compound or implement a synthesis method of your choice in our R&D labs.  After successful scale-up, we offer the complete development of the chemical manufacturing process at pilot scale as a basis for the subsequent tech transfer and commercial manufacturing. Our further services include the optimization of existing processes in terms of robustness, quality and costs.

Parallel to the development of syntheses and processes, our extremely well-equipped development analytics department comprehensively supports and tests the quality of our products, from start to finish. Our wide service ranges from method development, preparation of reference standards to implementation and validation, including stability studies in accordance with ICH standards.

Innovative, approachable and motivated: Our team of experienced organic chemists, analysis specialists, HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) managers, engineering experts and quality assurance specialists is here for you and will guarantee the success of your project. We would be happy to support you!

Our services – Your benefits:

  • Synthesis research and implementation on a laboratory scale for the supply of initial quantities in the gram range
  • Scale-up: Process development on a laboratory and pilot scale for the supply of kilogram quantities
  • Optimization of manufacturing processes, e.g. for synthesis of products for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry (intermediates and APIs)
  • Method development and implementation of analytical testing methods
  • Validation/Qualification of analytical methods and manufacturing processes
  • Manufacturing and qualification of reference materials (reference standards, comparative substances)
  • ICH stability studies
  • Support with regulatory submission and approval processes
  • Direct contacts who support your projects every step of the way from laboratory scale to GMP production scale
  • Maximum flexibility – we manufacture exactly to your requirements

“We develop robust chemical processes for scale-up in our cGMP production system.”
(Our Head of R&D)
