Charlotte, NC USA, August 30, 2010 – Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of
tools and technology for medicinal and analytical chemistry, has launched a new
range of HPLC columns optimized for peptide purification. The Resolux line was
introduced during the ACS Fall 2010 National Meeting & Exposition in Boston,
Massachusetts USA and will be premiered at the 31st European Peptide Symposium
on September 5th in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The new Resolux line from Biotage delivers purification solutions for very
short peptides up to large chains by offering consumables in three different
pore sizes. The new line will be available in three different surface
chemistries, covering the range from hydrophobic peptides to hydrophilic.
Resolux products are engineered to provide the selectivity and high resolution
required for the most demanding peptide purification. The products include
analytical, semi-prep and preparative HPLC columns from 2.1 mm to 30 mm
diameter, for predictable scale-up from micro-gram to multi-gram scale.
“The global market for custom peptides and synthetic therapeutic peptides is
growing, as academic researchers, the pharmaceutical and biotech industries
renew their interest in peptide-based drug discovery.” says Scott Carr, Vice
President of Biotage Commercial Operations. “The advances in synthetic,
delivery and formulation technologies are driving the revival in the use of
peptides as potential therapeutics, vaccines, diagnostics and drug delivery
devices. As researchers require higher quality peptides in ever greater
quantities and complexity, the need for reliable and innovative tools that
offer greater productivity and increased performance also grows.”
“Each of the thousands of peptides that are synthesized per year will require
purification. With the Resolux line, Biotage now offers a full range of HPLC
columns to meet this critical need. They really are a perfect complement to the
Syro Wave™” says Carr.
Introduced earlier this year, the Biotage Syro Wave sets a new standard for
productivity in difficult and long peptide sequence synthesis. The system is a
programmable peptide synthesizer that is capable of both conventional room
temperature parallel peptide synthesis and microwave assisted peptide
synthesis. It is a fully automated and computer controlled peptide synthesizer,
based on a pipetting robot with a single arm.
Users benefit from the unique ability to make part of the peptide sequence
using conventional solid phase peptide synthesis on the parallel reactor block
and then transfer the reactor vial to the microwave cavity to drive difficult
couplings to completion.
