RCS Research specializes in the synthesis of highly purified proteins, peptides and amino acid derivatives for research and development. RCS is a chemical supply company that has, since its inception, sold research chemicals for laboratory use only. We acknowledge and take very seriously the risks posed by the improper use of research chemicals for human consumption, for dietary or any other unlawful reason and, as such, have taken extensive steps to ensure that our business is doing what it can to guarantee that research chemicals do not end up in the wrong hands.

Customers are required to register and comply with ordering guidelines that we derived in large part from the NIH’s Ordering Guidelines for Research Chemicals, which are available here.

As detailed for consumers in easy-to-read disclaimers that have been placed in numerous areas of its website—including on RCS Research’s homepage, its Terms & Conditions page, its FAQs, as well as on every individual product page—our products are intended for lab research purposes only. Our product descriptions are limited to our “Disclaimers” and the following information “CAS NO, Molar Mass, Chemical Formula, Amino Acid Sequence, Storage Requirements, Solubility, Organoleptic Profile, Composition and Specification.” Our website does not site any scientific studies, mention any brand names, clinical trials or anything other than the mentioned information above in bold.

The disclaimers on our site explicitly cover that our products are not for human consumption. We pride ourselves on being an industry leader in providing accurate, clear and concise information.

At this time we do not respond to inquiries from the Media.

For an easy reference, here are the Disclaimers we use:

DISCLAIMER: By purchasing from RCS Research you agree that you are purchasing Research Chemicals.

RCS Research products are furnished for LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY. This product should only be handled by qualified, and licensed professionals.

*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).

Disclaimer: All references to “research subjects” or “test subjects” or and reference to “research” throughout this article refer to research conducted on non human non veterinary research subjects such as rats and mice. If we find that your intent is to use them outside of a legal manner we will no longer sell to you. To purchase Research Subjects visit The Jackson Laboratory.
