Structural Chemistry

Chemical testing and analysis is vital for regulatory compliance as well as to understand the quality and composition of chemical substances and materials in products, industrial processes and manufacturing. Specialist industry knowledge and expertise in applying the most relevant methodology are key to successful chemical testing. Advanced analytical instrumentation or a combination of techniques is needed to solve problems or determine composition.

Synergy Bioscience offers an array of approaches and techniques to characterize drug structures and analyze their purity at every step of the development process. In addition, Synergy’s integrated team approach unites our structural chemists with scientists from other departments to provide a comprehensive set of capabilities and expertise that will efficiently accelerate and strengthen the process of characterizing and identifying complex chemical and protein compounds.

Synergy has the expertise that goes beyond chemical characterizations to include a deep understanding of all facets of drug development that can impact the successful development and launch of a product. This includes experience analyzing different routes of administration, meeting regulatory requirements, solving packaging issues, and identifying potential problems in manufacturing. With in-depth academic history, diverse industry experience, and influential industry involvement, Irvine’s structural chemists are unsurpassed.
