What is Custom Synthesis?

We offer a range of services, with custom synthesis one of the most important with our customers. That’s why we’ve put together this blog to help readers understand a bit more about custom synthesis, and how it can benefit your company.

Who would choose custom synthesis?

Businesses who may have developed a new drug will want to certainly go down this route. They generally have to find the right supplier and make sure they sign a confidentiality agreement, to keep their new creation a secret.

Either the step by steps are provided, or merely a list of instructions which once completed will give the finished results.

Is it for large scale orders?

Not normally, once a product becomes large scale then you’re into contract manufacturing territory. Custom synthesis is brilliant for testing or trialling a product, as well as making something secretive in small doses.

If something needs fine-tuning, then this is an ideal opportunity to finalise things, before sending it out to a wider market.

Why not just make it in-house then?

Generally, pharmaceutical brands, unless absolute powerhouses in the industry, will opt to outsource the making of their product. They can’t afford the high costs of employing experts in chemistry all the time, as well as having the facilities to accommodate making the product.

By working with these experts, they can finalise certain details, make any small changes needed and perfect their product. Once this is done they can move onto the larger contract manufacturing option.

What are the benefits of custom synthesis?

  • Lower costs
  • Reduce waste
  • Saves valuable company time
  • Requirements are always to exact scale
  • Syntor’s team of experienced staff can make sure it is outsourced to the best locations

Many customers not only want to save time and effort but by outsourcing, they can benefit from having the help of experts in the field of science and technology. These highly skilled individuals will be able to deliver the finished product as expected and to the correct time-frames.

How can Syntor Fine Chemicals help?

Pharmaceutical companies may also offer smaller brands and businesses the chance to use their facilities but they’ll usually make you pay a premium for it. At the end of the day they’re likely to be a competitor, and they wouldn’t want to give a competitor a big advantage by letting them use their facilities, unless they are financially rewarded for doing so.

Syntor doesn’t have this problem however, with no ties or loyalties to certain brands, we can offer the job for a fair price. Our cost-effective outsourcing solutions are highly rated, with synthesis and adaptations of current processes no problem at all.
