Contract Research

Contract ResearchOTAVAchemicals is a science-based contract research organization that provides a full range of services relating to early drug discovery. The quality and reliability we offer is established from the company’s long-standing experience of over 20 years in the industry. We have developed a reputation as a trustworthy and experienced outsourcing partner and have a strong background in organic and medicinal chemistry, biochemistry and molecular modeling. A newly founded OTAVA Research Institute, a research arm of OTAVA Ltd., expanded available core competencies to include bioinformatics and development of fluorescent probes for biomedical applications as well the delivery of new technologies to the materials science and plant biotechnology industries. Please see the list of our publications. We would be glad to respond to any project proposal, and are ready to sign a non-disclosure agreement prior to any discussions.



The services we provide include the following:

  • Custom Synthesis (Read more...)
  • Molecular modeling and virtual screening, hit-to lead optimization Read more...)
  • Bioinformatics (Read more...)
  • Fluorescent Probes for Biomedical Applications (Read more...)
  • Finding of Antiviral Compounds (Read more...)
  • Design of Antimicrobial Bioactive Compounds (Read more...)
  • Development of Protein Kinase Inhibitors (Read more...)
  • Chemistry Consulting
    • We provide comprehensive chemistry consulting in the field of medicinal chemistry research, chemical libraries and organic synthesis at a reasonable cost.





  • Creativity and problem solving in the field of chemistry/biology
  • Weekly progress reports
  • Competitive pricing and fast turn-around time

Our company has extensive experience in the area of custom synthesis/contract research and guarantees quality results, competitive pricing, and a fast turn-around time.
We already collaborate with many companies and academic institutions in Europe, the U.S. and Canada; we hope you will consider working with us for your next project.

Our products are a part of Sigma-Aldrich product catalog

Our research facilities are located in North America, namely in Toronto, Kingston and Vaughan (Ontario, Canada) and Europe (Kyiv, Ukraine and Vilnius, Lithuania). We have fully equipped chemical laboratories with a well-developed infrastructure and routine access to NMR and LC-MS facilities. Full data (1H and 13C NMR, LRMS, HRMS and HPLC) is provided for all compounds to support their purity. Elemental analysis can be provided upon request. 



What we can do in our laboratories

  • Synthetic chemistry
  • Bioorganic chemistry
  • Medicinal chemistry
  • High-throughput (Hit-to-Lead & Lead Optimization) chemistry
  • Computational Chemistry / Cheminformatics
  • General Consulting





  • Three quadrupole tandem mass spectrometers for LC/MS analysis in APCI or ESI MS or MS/MS
