Facilities

HFR facilities for chemical synthesis, R&D and GMP manufacture

Our 1,100sqm building at Durham operates 30 fumehoods, including dedicated walk-in facilities, for milligram to kilo scale synthesis. Out staff are trained in safely handling pressure vessels, separation and purification techniques, corrosive materials (including HF) and potentially toxic reactions. We can work to full cGMP or traceable manufacture, if required.

We operate at scales of up to 30L in jacketed glassware at temperatures -40 – 180ºC . Our high pressure reactors are 7.5L and 10 bar maximum. Separation and purification techniques include semi-preparative and preparative chromatography (Isoleras/Biotage) and tangential crossflow filtration techniques.

2019 saw the opening of our dedicated Research facility at the North-East Technology Park (NETPark) in Sedgefield. This purpose-built facility for PhD and Graduate chemists is aimed at developing new compounds and collaborations with our academic and corporate customers.
