For high-quality biochemicals and analysis tools we recommend Cayman Chemical and LKT Laboratories. Cayman Chemical is on a mission to help scientists worldwide with their research dedicated to enhancing human and animal health by supplying high-quality biochemicals and analysis tools. LKT Laboratories is a research and development company focussing on the synthesis, purification, and isolation of small molecules for research applications. Its range of products exhibit known biological activities that have found uses in a wide array of research fields, especially cancer biology, endocrine signaling and immunology, microbiology and neuroscience.
“Biochemicals for Life Science Research,,
With nearly four decades of experience, Cayman Chemical’s range covers more than 20,000 products including antibodies, assay kits, biochemicals, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and recombinant proteins. Most of their products are biochemicals which include analytical standards, antibiotics, compound libraries, drugs of abuse, kinase inhibitors, natural products, oxidative stress reagents, small molecule inhibitors and many more. Also, assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, structure determination, and analytical services (LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, etc.) are part of their core business. All products are developed, produced and tested in-house by over 150 skilled scientists.
Preparing customized bulk batches is one of the Cayman Chemicals services. Products (biochemicals) can be prepared in quantities from a single gram to 100 grams.
Cayman Chemical (Forensics) has become a leader in the field of designer drugs by providing high-purity reference standards to federally licensed laboratories and qualified academic research institutions for forensic analysis. Cayman synthesizes a range of analytical standards including synthetic cannabinoids, cathinones, phenethylamins, amphetamines, indanes, opioids, benzodiazepines, tryptamines, and phytocannabinoids, among many others.
The biochemicals of Cayman Forensic are available in three quality grades:
- Reference Materials
- Certified Reference Materials
- Analytical Standards
Reference Material (RM)
Cayman’s Reference Materials (RMs) are sold in several sizes allowing for a low-cost, scalable, and highly flexible option for analytical labs. An RM is fully characterized, and its property values are tested under an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited quality system, making it fit for direct use by labs requiring traceable standards.
Certified Reference Material (CRM)
Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) serve as Primary Standards as defined by ISO and are suitable for labs requiring traceable quantitative standards. A CRM, as defined by ISO 17034:2016, must report the certified concentration and corrected purity values with the corresponding measurement uncertainties. Cayman’s CRMs ensure the metrological traceability and accuracy needed to perform quantitative measurements and are sold as quantitative solutions in sealed ampules.
Cayman’s Forensic Analytical Standards are accompanied by testing documentation to demonstrate purity and identity characterization and are formulated in small quantities as neat solids or in solution for use in analytical testing. They may be suitable for application in identification, analytical method validation, and quantification. However, analytical methods requiring quantification may require assessment of suitability or in-house verification to meet laboratory specifications and accreditations. Most Reference Materials are initially produced as Analytical Standards in order to make the Reference Material quickly available for use.
