Highlands Stable Isotopes (HSI) is a company that focuses its efforts on the development of new isotopically labeled precursors.  These new precursors allow for the facile assembly of any compound. HSI specializes in the synthesis of compounds that can be specifically tailored for your research needs. For example, through the use of these new synthons, chiral L-valine, with chiral differentiation at the methyl groups (13CH2D and 13CD2H), is easily produced. A variety of isotopically tailored natural products have been produced using HSI synthons. HSI is also in the business of providing custom synthesis services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industries as well as to government laboratories. This includes both the regio- and stereo- specific labeling of chiral compounds as well as the differentiation of prochiral centers with deuterium or carbon-13.

Dr. Rodolfo Martinez, our Chief Science Officer, served as a staff member at the National Stable Isotope Resource, Los Alamos National Laboratory where he began his work in the development of these new stable isotope labeled precursors. Dr. Martinez has over 28 years of experience in isotope chemistry and he is the principal author on all of these patented compounds.
