Medicinal Chemistry Laboratory

Our full equipped laboratory for synthetic medicinal chemistry provides all the necessary instrumentation for the research and development of small-molecule compounds for therapeutic investigations. Our laboratory recently was inspected and licensed (2016) by Health Canada for controlled drugs substances research.

Our analytical laboratory serves to provide efficient support to the medicinal chemistry laboratory. Quick characterizations and purity analysis allows for increased synthetic productivity

Drug Preformulations

Kotra laboratory is also equipped with suitable equipment and associated expertise to conduct pre-formulation research including physicochemical characterizations, stability studies, dosage form design/preparation and associated activites to support drug discovery efforts.

Protein Isolation/Purification and Biological Studies

Our biological laboratory is equipped to test our small molecules, via in vitro studies, for biological efficacy. This provides support for our drug discovery efforts
