Who We Are

The journey of Acanthus Pharma began with the founding of Acanthus Research Inc. in 2008. Set on the shores of Lake Ontario, Canada in the city of Mississauga, the original aim of Acanthus Research was to facilitate pharmaceutical research by providing high-quality reference standards and organic synthesis services. Over the years, we continuously expanded our catalogue of reference standards and portfolio of services, fueling consistent growth and achieving great success for our stakeholders, partners and customers.

Propelled by Success

Propelled by our past successes and growth, and with a desire to focus on custom synthesis requests and GMP manufacturing, company founders expanded our service offering with the decision, in 2021, to form a new company, Acanthus Pharma Services Inc. As a CDMO, we are focused on preclinical and early clinical drug development. Our mission is to provide tailored products and services that match your needs. Our strategy is to partner with and help you accelerate your internal programs into the clinical arena or towards your next clinical milestone.
