Key Organics and IsoChemiX announce their collaboration in the Stable Isotope Labelling arena.

IsoChemiX and Key Organics are delighted to announce their collaboration to provide a range of SIL building blocks, Intermediates and APIs to the Research community, greatly expanding the range and scope of synthetically useful compounds available.

IsoChemiX and Key Organics will also actively engage with Industry and Academic partners to provide SIL’s on an exclusive/custom basis and will seek to work with clients and partners in a truly consultative manner.

IsoChemiX (www.isochemix.com) is a UK discovery company recently spun out from the University of East Anglia Chemistry Department with particular expertise in the incorporation of stable isotope-labels into a spectrum of small molecules, oligomers, and protein targets for biopharma and academia.

Key Organics (www.keyorganics.net) is a long-established UK Chemistry CRO offering a wide variety of custom and contract services, as well as a large catalogue of high-quality research compound products under the ‘BIONET’ brand.
