Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals

Technical Expertise

Experienced Ph.D. chemists dedicated to your API development

Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals, a division of Albany Molecular Research Inc. has extensive experience successfully working with a wide range of classes of molecules, types of chemistry and types of controlled substances.

Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals has a team of experienced Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. chemists who have developed some of the most successful APIs on the market today. Our synthetic chemists and organic chemists can help you develop your target compounds, qualify and validate your existing processes, enhance and optimize your processes and scale up your API for toxicity trials, all phases of your clinical trials and finally to commercialization.

Our pharmaceutical chemists commonly work with small and mid-sized pharmaceutical companies to develop new APIs. They have also developed a collection of commercialized APIs that can be purchased from Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals for pharmaceutical companies to use in their drug manufacturing.

Types of Controlled Substances

Cedarburg Pharmaceuticals is fully licensed to handle Schedule II-V controlled substances. We can therefore safely and legally utilize these valuable compounds as starting materials or reagents in the production of API’s for our customers. Some of the controlled substances we have worked with include:

  • Amphetamines
  • Cannabinoids
  • Fentanyl derivatives
  • Opioids
  • Steroids
