The final week of February, 2019 (Feb. 25 - Mar 1), iLab Operations Software will be conducting an internal event and will be staffed at significantly reduced levels. iLab Support will prioritize critical issues first (i.e. issues that prevent key workflows from completing) and to escalate an issue, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, on the iLab Support phone (regional numbers can be found here). Regular support tickets will be monitored periodically and processed in order of submission starting March 4th, 2019. During this time, you can also refer to the iLab Help Site and iLab Status Page for site information. Please note that this will not affect standard Core Facility Operations.

Chemical Synthesis Core


The Chemical Synthesis Core is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to perform demanding chemical reactions (Schlenk technique, low temperature, photochemical, chiral synthesis, organometallics, carbohydrates, peptides, pressure reactions, isotopic labeling, etc.).  We offer services related to chemical synthesis and it is our goal to custom tailor solutions for each client. No matter if it is the simple synthesis of a reference compound or collaboration throughout an entire project – from the grant application to the published work – we will address your needs on an individual level. If there is a chemistry-related service that you do not find in our portfolio – please don't hesitate to give us a call. We are always curious about new ideas and directions.
