Our experience in the field of amino acids and related derivatives dates back to those early days, while now we manufacture also other synthetic molecules.
Flamma’s latest ventures, as a result of market trends and some specific requests, include diversification into custom development, manufacturing of peptides and protected amino acids.
Flamma is pleased to offer its skills in the field of amino acids derivatives and active pharmaceutical ingredients, backed up by our development and manufacturing facilities. Our 50 years-old reputation, our performance and the usual specific agreements are your gage of confidentiality and exclusivity.
Flamma was historically born with the amino acids more than 50 years ago. Among the first in Europe, we manufactured by extraction products like
L-Glutamic acid or L-Cysteine.
Later on we decided to focus on the wide and fascinating world of amino acids derivatives where we felt able to offer a better value and more competitiveness. In fact, there are hundreds of possible amino acids derivatives and many of them are already used for synthesis.
We can deal with the amino acids functional groups starting from manufacturing some simple salts to more sophisticated derivatives (protected and/or activated amino acids). Some of our products are routinely used as intermediates in the synthesis of active ingredients acting as anti-HIV or anticancer drugs, etc, or for peptide coupling.
More complex syntheses bring us to produce structurally different intermediates with a specific chirality (Ex. DL-Asparagine, D-Asparagine, 2,3 L-Diaminopropanoic Acid and its derivatives).
