ABA CHEM has an idea of developing environmental friendly technologies for chemical production. Following this idea, we work on the chiral chemistry and heterocyclic chemistry continuously, and we have developed a series of products including unnatural amino acid, heterocyclic aromatic products, pharmaceutical intermediates, agrochemical intermediates and biocatalysts (enzymes) all by ourselves.Before the acquisition with Puyi Chem, ABACHEM had 2 R&D centers located in Zhangjiang High-tech Park, adjacent to the R&D buildings of GSK, Roche and AZ. And, there’s another process R&D lab in Taicang production site. The GMP complied GMP pilot workshop could offer contract services from grams scale, kilograms scale to metric tons scale. After the acquisition, ABA CHEM got two more R&D centers in Songjiang Shanghai, and Huzhou, Zhejiang. The Songjiang R&D center has a floor area of 1000 m2, and has many intermediate synthesis labs which are supported by analysis equipments. In here, we could offer route selection, process development, pilot trial and specification validation.The Huzhou R&D center is dedicated for the development of biocatalyst and enzyme selection. Working dedicatedly on the gene clone, gene expression, gene modification, fermentation, enzyme separation, enzyme catalyzed reaction and enzyme immobilization, we have gained a lot of experiences in this area, and trained a group of experts. Beside of that, ABACHEM built a united chiral compound development platform together with SIOC. This could help the two sides have better development sources, cheaper raw materials and stronger industrialization ability.

R&D Team

ABACHEM is focused on the research and development in the area of new drugs and new agrochemicals. We have a R&D Team with high educated and experienced people, and we have corporation with SIOC. The R&D capability is strong: we have Suzhou Chiral drugs development center, Songjiang Pharmaceutical intermediates development center, Huzhou biocatalyst development center. We are leading in the chiral chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry area and the biocatalyst.
