NO! That would be illegal. RCS Research also known as Research Chemical Supply sells “Research Chemicals”. Research chemicals are chemical substances used by scientists for medical and scientific research purposes. One characteristic of a research chemical is that it is for laboratory research use only; a research chemical is not intended for human or veterinary use. This distinction is required on the labels of research chemicals, and is what exempts them from regulation under parts 100-740 in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (21CFR).

RCS Research specializes in the synthesis of highly purified , proteins, peptides and amino acid derivatives for research and development. Our products are intended for lab research purposes only.

We require an application and approval from our compliance department before allowing you to purchase from RCS Research. This is designed to prevent improper use of our products.
