About Synple Chem

Synple Chem is a spin-off from ETH Zürich. We have developed an automated reagent cartridge based synthesizer for chemical molecules. The machine works in analogy to a very well known coffee capsule system. With our device researchers can synthesize new molecules much faster, cheaper and more efficient than by traditional manual methods. We offer a broad range of cartridges covering the most frequently used chemical reactions in industry. The Synple Chem technology platform has the potential to speed up drug discovery cycles and to bring new medicines to the patient faster.
