Rapidly synthesize high quality peptides using microwave irradiation. A cost effective and versatile accessory for manual microwave peptide synthesis and cleavage when used with a Biotage® Initiator+ microwave synthesizer.
Biotage® Initiator+ represents the latest in microwave synthesis performance. This instrument’s high-end specifications enable the chemist to explore new areas and perform the latest of innovations in chemistry. A reliable and upgradeable platform that allows chemists to make great discoveries in less time.
Biotage® Initiator+ Alstra™ is a fully automated microwave peptide synthesizer . With functionality such as Branches, Preactivation and “Edit on the fly”, and options for UV monitoring and MAOS (organic synthesis) capability, this instrument represents best-in-class systems for both small and large scale synthesis of peptides, peptoids, PNA and peptidomimetics.
“The Initiator+ SP Wave – I think it’s an amazing little beast. Semi-automated, which I think is ideal for an academic lab making lots of bizarre peptides and exotics on a day-to-day basis then it’s a fantastic instrument. You can make PNA and ours has worked amazingly well in terms of the purity of materials obtained”
Prof Mark Bradley, School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh
Automation for Microwave Assisted Organic Synthesis
Biotage® Initiator+ can be upgraded from a single-sample manual format to an automated 8- or 60-position system. The modular design allows a user to add on different automated sample processors dependent on throughput requirements.
Durable and safe reactions at all times. Our high precision microwave vials are designed and tested to withstand pressures beyond 30 bar in a wide range of conditions.
NOTE: Biotage® Microwave Reaction Vials (in combination with the caps and septa) are ONLY to be used in Biotage Microwave Synthesizers.
The latest innovation in phase separation, More efficient than traditional glass separating funnels
Phase separators are a range of columns fitted with a selectively permeable, optimized frit material that separates aqueous phase from an organic phase under gravity. The design is as simple as it is ingenious. There are no moving parts and nothing to prime, it’s all achieved by hydrophobic/hydrophilic interactions.
