Custom manufacturing of ingredients for the Life Science Industry.

In the race to bring your innovation to trials and commercialization the experience and know-how of your manufacturing partner means everything.


Our key personnel at Syntagon have the necessary experience from companies such as AstraZeneca, Pharmacia and Ferring and not the least from assisting over 100 innovative companies, world wide.

Syntagon also brings a technological edge needed when the manufacturing process requires HPLC purification on large scale or difficult manufacturing conditions such as cryogenic chemistry.


Our service portfolio, personal attention and focus on communication make us particularly suited to helping smaller innovative companies navigate through the regulatory requirements.

We welcome your request.

In 1992, fresh out of graduate school, I had the good fortune to join the rapidly growing Process R&D team at Astra (later AstraZeneca). The growth of Astra, fuelled by the incredible success of some recent product launches, created an exciting professional environment for the Process R&D team. Seven years later, loaded with experience from many aspects of CMC in pharma development, I teamed up with my Astra colleague Paul Alhadeff, and set out to start Syntagon.


We had a clear idea of providing innovative Life Science companies with drug substance development and manufacturing for clinical trials.  Soon the Syntagon team consisted of 20 highly qualified chemists, working in brand new laboratories and a pilot plant equipped with shiny new reactors. A few years later our first GMP certificate was in hand.



Our Story

In 2005 we were ready to launch our Latvian branch (Syntagon Baltic). Latvia having innovative life science traditions as well as an established pharma industry and a recent EU member was a natural choice for us.


Today, a decade later, Syntagon Baltic boasts a team of highly skilled scientists working in laboratories for both synthesis and small scale manufacturing (50 L) and a well equipped quality control laboratory, of course EMA certified.


Together we proudly offer a comprehensive development package for Life Science ingredients and GMP manufacturing from early development to commercial manufacturing.
