Sygnature Chemicals – BioCity Nottingham


Sygnature Chemical Services is a leading UK based provider of premium discovery chemistry services. Sygnature occupies modern laboratories and offices in BioCity Nottingham, one of Europe’s largest bioscience incubators. The expansion of the facility has created two purpose-designed and purpose-built laboratories to accommodate Sygnature’s growing chemistry team.

The two laboratories have been designed to maximise the use of space and to foster Sygnature’s discovery chemistry activities, which make use of parallel synthesis and purification techniques, and ‘cutting edge’ analytical techniques to increase efficiency and productivity.

Client Comments

‘Sygnature has worked on 3 projects with CDC and on each occasion, we have been very pleased both with
the overall process and with the result. We were kept informed with all developments during the projects,
and changes to the original briefs were accommodated with no fuss. The CDC project managers also made very useful suggestions which had a positive influence on both running and the final outcome of the projects.’
