With the acquisition of Snapdragon Chemistry, Cambrex has strengthened our reputation as a provider of solutions for the most complex chemistry problems. Snapdragon scientists and engineers, working in state-of-the-art laboratories and leveraging advanced software and equipment, painstakingly pursue scalable synthetic processes for clients. We take pride in being able to “crack the code” on chemical development in a way that others can’t, and we don’t rest until your molecules are thoroughly characterized and your processes are repeatable, reliable and ready for production.
You can see the full breadth of Snapdragon’s capabilities and expertise below.
