Synthose Inc. is a group of carbohydrate synthesis specialists with an R&D and manufacturing laboratory just north of Toronto in Canada.

Established in 2006 as LC Scientific Inc. by Dr. Eva Goss, in 2016 we moved to a larger facility and changed our name to Synthose to better reflect our focus on the synthesis of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates.

Our laboratory is equipped with ten fume hoods and can accommodate synthesis projects from the milligram scale to the kilogram scale in our 80L reactor and 20L evaporator.

Process testing and quality assurance are done with our in-house HPLC instrument equipped with UV and ELS detectors, as well as by same-day NMR and MS services at nearby York University.

New in 2023, we are now using an Automated Flash Chromatography Purification System, equipped with UV and ELS detectors and able to purify using up to 3kg of silica.
