Colorado Chromatography Labs will be closed the week of Thanksgiving (Nov 21-25). We will resume normal operations on November 28.

In addition to large scale process chemistry, Colorado Chromatography Labs is also a leader in cannabis-based research. Our research team has over 45 years of chemical experience ranging from academia, pharmaceutical, and industrial laboratories. The staff chemists have experience with: oxidations, reductions, protections, olefinations, organotransition metal chemistry, and photochemistry. The Research and Development team holds several pending patents on new cannabinoids and has promising oncology studies heading into in vivo animal studies.

Colorado Chromatography also offers contract manufacturing services for a variety of cannabinoid and non-cannabinoid target molecules. Reach out to our sales department today if you have a project that needs to be scaled or brought to fruition.
