Company | Facilities
The high quality standards of our products and services are ensured by the use of high-end equipment and modern facilities specialized for organic synthesis, combinatorial chemistry, quality control and storages.
The well-established production processes and advanced logistic system enable the safe and on-time delivery of Life Chemicals compounds.
In 2015 Life Chemicals Group rent a specialized building from the Institute of Organic Chemistry of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine according to long-term contract.
The building has been completely renovated, over 2000 m2 lab space with state-of-the-art equipment for advanced chemistry practice became available.
Now this production building with more than 50 lab rooms is our powerful base for fulfilling custom synthesis and early drug discovery projects of our clients.
Our team is well equipped for diverse chemistry practice including recent developments in organic synthesis. To perform advanced synthetic procedures we have the full spectrum of required equipment: Biotage® Microwave station, Paar® autoclaves, Photochemistry lab and specialized facilities for handling of highly toxic reagents. We are also prepared for complex multistep syntheses in milligram to kilogram scales.
