Phenomenex Chiral Screening Services Now Offered in China

Collaboration with Chinese Academy of Sciences ensures Fast, high-quality Screening.

Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces the extension of its Chiral Screening Service to pharmaceutical and natural products customers in China.
The service is offered in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a leading academic and R&D center under which the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC) has developed a strong chiral team that works closely with Phenomenex. The free Chiral Screening Service provides target screening using a library of HPLC columns including the Phenomenex Lux™ polysaccharide-based offerings, which demonstrate a success rate approaching 90 percent. After resolving the chiral compound, Phenomenex delivers a method development and optimization plan to the customer within 10 business days – the same rapid turnaround the service promises in the U.S. and Europe.

“Our customer base in China has been growing rapidly and the expansion of our services will help us better serve them,” explains Michael Klein, brand manager for Phenomenex. “By teaming up with the CAS-SIOC, we are able to quickly roll out our rapid-response service.”

Enantiomers of chiral compounds may have different pharmacological effects in biological systems and they must be identified and evaluated separately. “Resolving chiral compounds is relatively difficult, and column selection can be complicated,” continues Klein. “Our Chiral Screening Service eliminates time-consuming guesswork and also gives customers a chance to ‘test-drive’ our Lux columns.”

The Phenomenex team of chiral experts will customize a plan for each screening project, taking into account specific requirements and overall separation goals. Once a project is completed, the customer will receive a report that details the optimal method including information on the chiral stationary phase (CSP) selected for the separation, running conditions and associated chromatograms. Customers can find more information at: or contact the group directly via e-mail at

Phenomenex, celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2012, is a global technology leader committed to developing novel analytical chemistry solutions that solve the separation and purification challenges of researchers in industrial, clinical research, government and academic laboratories. From drug discovery and pharmaceutical development to food safety and environmental analysis, Phenomenex chromatography solutions accelerate science and help researchers improve global health and well-being.  For more information on Phenomenex, visit
