BDG Synthesis

I'm proud of this company and proud of our scientists. Their efficiency, friendliness and enjoyment of their work will benefit your next project.
Barry Dent, Ph.D., CEO

You are looking for the metabolites, internal standards, deuterated compounds and reference materials you need to make your work easier, more productive, more accurate, more defensible, and more profitable.

Please browse the 600-odd compounds in our catalog. If you don't find what you want, please contact us- we will search our databases and advise if there is a supplier, anywhere, even if we have to send you to a competitor. If your compound is not commercially available, we will quote you for its synthesis.

Our catalog is a small subset of the chemicals we make. Most of our business is done on a custom basis. We are very keen to talk with you about what you need, be it a fixed-price custom synthesis quote for a one-off compound, or your ongoing requirements best served by a competitive FTE research agreement.

Like you, we're trained scientists. We know that you want to talk right away to a technically qualified person, and not get lost in the bureaucracy. You'll be surprised how quickly a small firm like ours can turn a quote around or provide some free information.


BDG Synthesis specialises in the custom synthesis of milligram to gram quantities of stable isotope labelled materials, metabolites and reference standards, for clients in the United States, EU and Asia Pacific. We mainly work for the bioanalytical departments of CROs and pharma companies, and are familiar with the quality standards and internal procedures needed to support their work. Audit reports are available on request.

Our company is staffed exclusively by PhD organic chemists. Everything other than synthesis, such as analytical chemistry, is outsourced to the best local providers, with relationships going back to the founding of our company.

BDG Synthesis is a privately owned New Zealand corporation, with six chemists and based near Wellington. The company is managed by founder Dr. Barry Dent. Barry started making reference materials in 1987, and BDG Synthesis has been in current ownership since 1996. Our company is run on conservative principles of gradual organic growth, staying true to the concept of expert service within a defined niche. We have no outside investors and receive no government funding.

To serve the local forensic and environmental science community, we also import analytical reference standards from the global market leader, Cerilliant Corporation, with whom we have been working since 1989.
