Apollo Scientific: Partnering your business from the lab book to commercial API

Chimica Oggi-Chemistry Today

Apollo are a UK based manufacturer and supplier who have been serving the global R&D and Pharmaceutical community for over 25 years. We specialise in fluorinated compounds along with substituted aromatics, heterocyclics and a growing life science product portfolio with almost 20,000 compounds now available from stock.


In addition to our catalogue business we specialise in new product development and custom synthesis of non-catalogue compounds within our UK based laboratory where we can manufacture on up to 10kg scale. With over 130 years of combined lab-based experience and seven dedicated chemists, we can quickly and efficiently deal with your synthetic challenges and demands. 2019 has seen us add flow chemistry into our capabilities allowing us to further enhance the chemistry and scale up services we can offer.


In June 2018 we established a second stock location in the USA. Our American customers will no longer have to import Apollo items from the UK, instead we can ship straight from our Florida Warehouse, for next day delivery with no duty charges. We currently stock 10,000 compounds within the USA and have plans to increase this to 15,000 by the end of 2019.


As a wholly owned subsidiary of the Central Glass Company, headquartered in Japan, we are able to scale up our technologies through to commercial utilising group facilities and working closely with our sister companies, the US based Synquest Laboratories, with particular strength in fluorinated aliphatics, and European based cGMP manufacturer Central Glass Germany. This group synergy allows us to handle projects from the initial R&D stage, for building blocks/ intermediates right through to commercial API production.


We have also developed an extensive sourcing network, over our 25 year history, and can find the most suitable manufacturing partner for your projects should in house manufacturing not be an option. We work closely with a number of manufacturers internationally and have an office located within Shanghai to further facilitate sourcing, site visits and auditing of factories within China.


Whether it be an off the shelf catalogue pack, a commercial scale late stage intermediate, API or maybe something a bit more bespoke, make Apollo Scientific and the Central Glass group your partner of choice. We are uniquely placed to be able to support your project from concept to reality ensuring reliability.
