A PIONEER AND RECOGNIZED LEADER IN CARBOHYDRATE AND POLYMER TECHNOLOGY
CarboMer offers extensive expertise in material sciences for the life sciences. We employ a broad technology platform for the development of innovative products in the R&D and commercial arena, including research and diagnostic products, complex bioorganics, bulk intermediates, active pharmaceutical ingredients, excipients, cosmetic ingredients and nutraceuticals. Our products include functionalized carbohydrates, polypeptides, synthetic polymers, chiral synthons and many other products.
CarboMer applies leading-edge technologies to the development of novel life science products and solutions tailored to customer needs. We offer custom-designed biologicals and chemicals, as well as expertise and proprietary know how in biopharmaceuticals, drug delivery, formulation and other areas.
For nearly two decades we have provided a reliable partnership for our clients’ transition from discovery to commercial product development. Our clients include some of the most prominent international biotechnology, medical device and pharmaceutical firms and research centers. We are headquartered in San Diego, a leading center of Southern California’s biotechnology community.
Carbohydrates and polymers present valuable platforms for a wide spectrum of life science products. Glycotechnology has long been considered the ‘sleeping giant’ of biotechnology as carbohydrates play a pivotal role in disease prophylaxis and therapy. CarboMer is a glycotechnology leader with a broad arsenal of enzymatic, chemical and other leading-edge transform-ations, an extensive formulation repertoire and key technologies for drug delivery, bioavailability and stability enhancement. Its unmatched scope of expertise positions CarboMer uniquely in proprietary technologies for diagnostics, specialty chemicals, drug delivery, and therapeutics.
CONTROL BY ‘SMART’
MODULATION OF MOLECULAR PARAMETERS
CarboMer has developed diversified expertise in chemistries of water soluble polymers, carbohydrates, bio-polymers and other chiral molecules. We work at the interface of aqueous and non-aqueous solutions, gels, porous matrices, films and membranes. Our forte is the synthesis of new polymers and copolymers and the manipulation of molecular parameters, such as formula weight, charge, polydispersity and surface activity.
We can confer solubility, degradability and conductivity, alter bioadhesion, matrix strength, bioavailability and biostability, modulate immunological responses, enhance binding capacities for specific biological substrates and metals, and tether, if needed in a highly selective and targeted fashion, unique affinity ligands or diagnostic probes to polymers, proteins and other biologically substrates. We form stable drug complexes, encapsulate and create slow release formulations.
Our repertoire includes a full range of chemistries, selective derivatizations with fluorescent and nitroxide probes, fluorine, stable isotopes, enzymatic and non-conventional methods.
Our goal is to provide consistent, on-time delivery of cost-effective, high quality, well characterized materials and technologies that meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.
