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 offers a wide range of tools to help study the chemical and biological aspects of the toxic response and the mechanisms involved in carcinogenicity, organ toxicity, clinical drug metabolism, environmental toxicity, and food contamination.
With more than 40 years of experience in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals, Cayman Chemical 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. Our highly trained staff of chemists provide institutions with solutions to quickly identify and understand the physiological and toxicological properties of new designer drugs. Cayman synthesizes a range of analytical standards including synthetic cannabinoids, cathinones, phenethylamines, amphetamines, indanes, opioids, benzodiazepines, tryptamines, and phytocannabinoids, among many others.
For institutions that rely on highly traceable reference materials for use in quantitative or qualitative testing, Cayman offers synthesized reference materials and certified reference materials accredited to meet ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 17034:2016 standards.
