Peptide Synthesis Applications

Gain insight into how Protein Technologies' platforms have been applied in research and development related to biomaterials, drug delivery, peptide therapeutics, vaccines and venoms & toxins.

Read our new article “Turning up the heat on peptide purity” in Chemistry Today to learn how:

  • Parallel synthesis optimization was performed on the Prelude X for the preparation of difficult and biologically active peptides
  • Optimized methods with induction heating can be used to achieve a 5-fold decrease in reaction time and 4-fold increase in crude purity
