What our clients say about us

“When GRO Biosciences was looking for a skilled partner in the synthetic carbohydrate chemistry space, we surveyed a number of firms.  Glycosyn offered us a blend of competence, creativity, and ease of interaction that keeps us coming back for more. 

What started as a single project has now grown into 5 projects across 30 months and counting.  We have dealt with a variety of team members at Glycosyn, all of whom bring strong expertise in their subject matter areas and a commitment to getting the job done.  Given the other partners that we diligenced for our projects, it simply wouldn’t be possible to do with them what we’re doing with Glycosyn.”

Christopher Gregg CSO, GRO Biosciences

“GlycoSyn not only have excellent facilities supported by world class staff but importantly from a client’s perspective, understand the pharmaceutical industry needs and demanding standards from laboratory work through to process design and scale up under GMP.

This, together with not only a “can do” but a “will do” attitude has significantly contributed to our ongoing success.”

Philip Marshall CEO, Oncology Research International Limited

“I’ve had the great fortune to work with GlycoSyn for over 10 years  on projects that span my time at Spinifex Pharmaceutical and Starpharma.

In all their work for me they have demonstrated a very high level of technical proficiency as they developed scalable synthetic routes to APIs and intermediates and executed cGMP campaigns. Their facility is first-class and is supported by an excellent analytical chemistry group and a robust quality assurance system.

What sets GlycoSyn apart is they do more than just ‘fee-for-service’ work; they commit to a project as if it were their own.”

Tom McCarthy CEO, Spinifex Pharmaceuticals
