HepatoChem, Inc. Designs Innovative Tools for the Life Sciences Industry

HepatoChem has developed extensive capabilities to quickly survey organo-metallic chemistry systems and design innovative tools for the pharmaceutical industry. It has most recently commercialized the BMO (BioMimetic Oxidation) Kit, which utilizes rapid one step biomimetic chemistry to generate useful quantities of drug candidate metabolites.  Applying a similar developmental approach, HepatoChem is now providing unique tools for the instant and flexible diversification of biologically active small molecules. These tools are largely centered on fluorination chemistry. HepatoChem is currently working with Vertex, a local biotech based in Boston, MA, to develop tools to allow for fast discovery of fluorinated analogues of small molecules, which Vertex scientists will employ in their own projects.

HepatoChem Co-founder and President Marc Bazin stated “Our work with Vertex is an extraordinary opportunity to demonstrate the versatility of HepatoChem’s platform. We are all committed to the development of innovative tools, such as chemical diversification kits, for companies that are seeking to discover and develop new medicines. “
