- Cayman Chemical
Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Cayman Chemical Company supplies scientists worldwide with the resources necessary for advancing human and animal health. We manufacture high quality biochemicals, assay kits, antibodies, and recombinant proteins and offer contract services for custom chemical synthesis/analysis, assay development/screening, and drug discovery.
Our mission is to help make research possible. That starts by employing a talented and highly qualified group of experts to develop the tools to support research scientists across academic, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical institutions. Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of a wide-range of biochemicals. We are highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development and are fully accomplished at protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.
Cayman creates and supplies small molecules, biochemicals, assay kits, antibodies, and proteins to scientists around the world. We produce reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.
Worldwide distribution of our products is coordinated through Biomol GmbH in Hamburg, Germany and Cayman Europe in Tallinn, Estonia for our European distribution network and through numerous independent distribution companies.
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients
Our organic, process, and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Cayman Pharma in Neratovice (just outside of Prague in the Czech Republic) specializes in the commercial production of prostaglandin Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) for generic drug formulators.
Forensic Science Division
Cayman is a leader in the field of emerging drugs of abuse, providing high-purity Schedule I-V Controlled Substances to federally-licensed laboratories and qualified academic research institutions for forensic analyses. We are certified by ANAB Accreditation Services with dual accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO Guide 34:2009, providing a range of analytical standards, including synthetic cannabinoids, cathinones, phenethylamines, amphetamines, indanes, opioids, benzodiazepines, tryptamines, and phytocannabinoids, among many others.
Contract Research Services
Cayman recognizes the value built through investing in technology and in our dedicated research scientists to produce our catalog products. We offer that level of expertise to pre-clinical researchers through our contract research services in Chemical Synthesis, Chemical Analysis, Bioanalysis, and Medicinal Chemistry. We offer comprehensive solutions to drive your projects to completion, delivering prompt quotations, competitive prices, quality science, and personalized customer service.
Drug Discovery Programs
Cayman’s medicinal chemistry division has pre-clinical drug discovery efforts underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. This includes proprietary compound development, in vitro testing, and IP protection activities. Opportunities are available for partners to advance these programs through the development and regulatory pipeline toward approval and commercialization.
Support for the Research Community
Cayman’s commitment to the research community comes in part by supporting young scientists. We offer grants and resources to help alleviate the burden of cost for traveling to conferences and printing theses. We are proud to celebrate the accomplishments of scientists who have made us a part of their work by promoting their publications and posters.
Cayman Biomedical Research Institute, CaBRI, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping those with unmet biomedical needs and conditions. It was established to advance the practice and standards of assisted reproductive technology (ART) through Donor Conceived Services. This organization supports research to understand and treat certain rare cancers such as SNUC and aids families with related biomedical needs.
