Specialised Chemical Services
Whether you are engaged in initial research or scaling up to full production the time may come when you need a product that is not readily available in a chemical catalogue. When that time comes we can support your chemistry and save your time and resources.
The chemical or blend YOU need, tested, labeled, packaged and delivered to your exact specification:
- Semi-Bulk and Bulk products
- Tailored Solvents and Solvent Blends
- Special Solutions
- Testing Services
- Customised Packaging and Labeling
It’s all possible through Fisher Scientific.
Semi-Bulk & Bulk Chemical Service
Our extensive catalogue offering encompasses the Fisher Chemical, Fisher BioReagents, Acros Organics and Maybridge brands. Through our global supply- chain network we can secure and manage the supply of semi-bulk and bulk volume products using either internal manufacturing or select partners. Whether the product you need is from within our catalogue offering or not we can provide semi-bulk and bulk volumes to support your specific research and manufacturing needs.
Tailored Solvents and Solvent Blends
Why compromise with an “all purpose” solvent? We can tailor-make solvents to meet the specifications you provide for your application. Our experience in manufacturing, processing and testing high-purity solvents enables customization to your specifications. In addition, our dedicated solvent mixing facilities can produce high-purity blends specified by our customers.
We have experience in developing solutions for our catalog range, but if you have a special requirement for an aqueous or non-aqueous solution, we can manufacture it to your exact requirements.
Our extensive in-house laboratory QC capabilities, and utilization of accredited external partners allows us to respond quickly to specific quality control testing at your request on chemicals you purchase from us.
This includes method development and validation, which establishes that the performance characteristics of an analytical method are suitable for its intended purpose. All significant method characteristics are defined: Specificity, Reproducibility, Accuracy, Precision, Linearity, Limit of Detection, Limit of Quantitation and Range. In addition, our custom weighing service can provide you with products from the Acros Organics and Maybridge brands at a scale from nanogram to ton — and in your own specified containers if required
Customized Packaging and Labeling
Our products are available in a wide variety of innovative packaging designed for safety, environmental protection, convenient handling and storage and preservation of product integrity while complying with all relevant regulations. Custom-packaging is also available for chemicals supplied by you.
Quality & Reliability
All of our manufacturing and QC processes are written in standard operating procedures and are carefully followed to assure specifications and the consistency of products we deliver. Our manufacturing quality is reflected in a variety of certifications and licenses that we hold,including our ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004, FDA, DEA and ATF licenses, which are regularly audited. We welcome pre-arranged customer visits to our sites to showcase our capabilities and competencies. Our testing capabilities include:
Spectroscopy — Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS), Ultraviolet-visible Spectrophotometry (UV), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR).
Chromatography — Gas Chromatography (GC) with a range of detectors, GC-Mass Spectrometry; High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) with diode-array or refractive index detectors, HPLC- Mass Spectrometry and Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC).
Other capabilities — Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), optical rotation, specific gravity, density, viscosity, melting point, refractive index, Karl Fisher moisture analysis (KF), loss on drying (LOD), ash determination, particle size and color scale measurement are also available.
Strategic Sourcing Expertise
Our blending, distillation, crystallization, testing, packaging and filling capabilities allow us to manufacture a broad range of products and deliver tailored chemical solutions to customers in the pharmaceutical, biotech and general industrial markets.
We specialize in high-volume packaging as well as custom micro-scale weighing, while maintaining chemical purity. Technology transfer is also a service capability we offer through our supply chain network.
Our sourcing team has the global reach to make the best buy available on the market without losing sight of local market demands, needs and expectations. We can provide a “lean” single supplier option and reliably manage multi-product supply projects.
Our Technical Sourcing specialists work with you to understand your process requirement and with our supply partners to ensure these requirements are met in full, on time In short, we can provide virtually any chemical, test it, package it and deliver it to your exact specifications.
