We have spent 200 years building an extensive range of controlled substances and opioids. Our heritage includes Macfarlan Smith Ltd, based in Edinburgh, UK, which is the world’s leading manufacturer of opiate alkaloids. We have further facilities in Annan, Scotland, and also have US-based facilities in West Deptford, NJ, and Conshohocken, PA. Additionally, we specialise in other areas such as cannabinoids and synthetic stimulants and our products are extensively used in therapeutic classes including analgesia, CNS disorders and anti-addiction treatments. All of our facilities operate to the highest level of cGMP standards and we provide our customers with outstanding levels of service.

We have been isolating and purifying APIs from natural products for over two hundred years. Our wide range of expertise in natural product extraction allows for the provision of commercially viable alternatives to synthetic routes.
These facilities are also available for the extraction of customers’ own natural raw materials and the production of alkaloids and other active principles not included in our product list. We are able to offer extractive technologies through our cutting-edge aqueous, solvent and continuous solvent extraction methods.
