Area of Operations
SiChem synthesizes APIs for early stage (Toxicology) drug design. A special field of expertise is the preparation of biologically and pharmacologically active compounds with increased bioavailibity (prodrugs).
SiChem has previously developed unique and efficient preparative synthesis techniques in the area of enantioseparation to prepare larger amounts up to the 100 g scale.
For quality control and metabolic studies high-tech analytical equipment, namely HPLC-MS and NMR, is available.
The diagnostics under development will be suitable for high-throughput screening i.e. in pharmaceutical industry.
To complete complex projects for our clients from the pharmaceutical sector requires concentration, flexibility, innovation and sometimes also creativity on our part every day. Our extensive experience in the area of custom synthesis/contract research helps us finding optimum solutions for new tasks as well.
We assist you competently until the agreed objectives are met, keeping in dialogue with you and responding to your instructions and requests. And we provide professional documentation as a matter of course.
We make our chemical and technical know-how available to you for custom synthesis tasks and innovative research. This will enable you to concentrate on your core business and even save you expenditure for additional infrastructure and personnel.
We support you in the area of classical custom synthesis (building blocks and target structures) for the areas of medical research, pharmaceutical development, lead compound and prodrug development. If more specialist tasks are involved, such as metabolite synthesis (synthetic or enzymatic) or the synthesis of various salts of a substance and their crystallisation behaviour (polymorphism screening via X-ray), we are also the people to turn to.
We will also take on your separation problems: we can handle the separation of racemates of up to 1 kg. Of course we will also purify your compounds (by chromatography or crystallisation) and, if you wish, even get them ready for distribution (package, label, box etc.). We support you from A to Z or only in small partial areas, tailoring our activities to your individual needs.
