BAPEKS is an independent private company, founded 1989 in Riga, Latvia. The Company is located at the Nordic Industrial Park in Olaine, a home to several chemical and pharma companies.
BAPEKS specializes in the development and custom synthesis of selected amino acid derivatives, protected building blocks and spacers. The core structures of protected compounds contain amino, carboxyl, hydroxyl, azide and some other functional groups. More than 15 different protecting groups are routinely used for selective functional group protection.
Chemical laboratory facilities (520 m2) are equipped for preparative organic synthesis in up to 20 L glass reactors and 20 L rotavapors. In case the capacities are too small for a customer, BAPEKS applies know-how transfer to a partner CMO.
