R & D Infrastructure and Technical Capabilities

Actis Pharma has been set up with a clear objective of emerging as a technology leader in its product portfolio.
Spread over an area of 3000 sq. ft., the R&D lab is fully equipped with the latest fume hood systems with a variety of equipment ranging from lab hydrogenator to Rotary Evaporator.

  • 3 Fume hoods - 6 feet, with storage area for chemicals & reagents
  • 2 Island Benches - with washing provision and Glass ware storage
  • Large flasks / reactors - of 20, 50 & 100 litres assemblies
  • Rotary Evaporators - Heidolph
  • Pilot hydrogenator - 2 litres

Our strength is scientific pool and experience of our team which comprises of:

  • 2 PhDs with 15 to 25 years of experience
  • 10 M Sc. With 5 to 10 years of experience and
  • Other support staff

Their experience has been in handling various complex reactions ranging from hydrogenations to Suzuki couplings with ease.

The chemistry capabilities of the team, covers the following areas:

  • Chiral chemistry - chiral resolution, racemization
  • Steriod chemistry
  • Hetrocyclic synthesis (benzimidazole, indole, isoxazole, etc.)
  • Asymmetric oxidation and reduction
  • Hydrogenations (H2 gas, transfer hydrogenation)
  • Complex synthesis (selective reactions)
  • Nitration
  • Cynation
  • Reactions involved LDA, n-BuLi, NaH, Borane in THF, BDMS, DIBAL, Vitride, CrO3 on commercial scale

The Team's chemistry capabilities are backed with a fully equipped Analytical laboratory with the entire range of     analytical equipment from HPLCs to GCs.

  • Fully Loaded HPLC - make AGILENT
  • Gas chromatography with Head Space made AGILENT
  • Infrared Spectrophotometer
  • Digital Polarimeter
  • Ph meters
  • Melting point apparatus
  • Magnetic Stirrers with Hot Plat
  • Particle size analyzers
  • Double Beam UV - Visible Spectrophotometer
  • Environmental chambers for performing stability studies

Our quality systems conform to national and international regulations and have been implemented across all our operations to ensure qualitative output at each step. We are ultimately committed to timely delivery of all our services within the quality parameters set by our Customers
