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

OUR 1,100SQM BUILDING AT DURHAM OPERATES MORE THAN 30 FUME HOODS AS WELL AS DEDICATED WALK IN FACILITIES FOR cGMP MANUFACTURE AND HIGH PRESSURE REACTIONS. OTHER SPECIALISED FACILITIES INCLUDE LABORATORIES FOR ELECTROCHEMISTRY AND SEGREGATED LABORATORIES FOR HANDLING CORROSIVE MATERIALS INCLUDING AQUEOUS HF OR WORKING IN ISOLATION.

We operate at scales of up to 30L in jacketed glassware at temperatures -40 – 180ºC and have several high pressure reactors up to 7.5L that operate up to 10 bar. Separation and purification techniques include crystallisation, distillation, semi preparative and preparative chromatography and tangential crossflow filtration techniques.

2016 saw an expansion of facilities to the Wilton Research Centre. A former ICI corporate Research Centre, the site provides excellent chemical laboratories and office space and has given us more space and capacity for further expansion.
