Custom Services

In the early days of lipid research, when a unique lipid was needed for a project, investigators would either have to suspend their research to synthesize the lipid or find a collaborator to do the work. Today, Avanti is the preferred choice for collaboration on the synthesis of unique lipids.

Avanti was established to provide a source of quality lipids to scientists which freed them to concentrate on their own research. It wasn’t long before lipid researchers started bringing their own ideas to Avanti, and thus, a long-standing relationship was established with the research community.

Avanti is now the recognized leader in custom lipid synthesis and formulation development. In addition, Avanti can provide unique packaging solutions for researchers to improve stability and handling of lipids that are routinely used in their application.
