Uppsala, Sweden, July 12, 2011 / B3C newswire / – Biotage® (STO: BIOT), a leading supplier of tools and technology for analytical, medicinal, and peptide chemistry, introduced an innovative, new instrument for peptide professionals at the 2011 American Peptide Symposium in San Diego, California USA.
The Biotage Initiator+ SP Wave is a versatile synthesis solution as it can be used as a standalone peptide synthesizer or easily converted to a high specification MAOS system. It is the ideal development tool for chemists synthesizing peptides, peptidomimetics and small molecules using single or multi-step procedures.
The Initiator+ SP Wave is perfectly suited for the small scale synthesis of peptides and peptidomimetics including PNA using microwave irradiation, from a scale as low as 5 µmol. The semi-automated operation can reduce the consumption and waste of expensive reagents which occur in other systems due to priming or use of large dead volumes.
The Initiator+ SP Wave is a semi-automated, programmable synthesis system. It includes a large 10” touch screen, intuitive software, pre- or self-defined methods, inert gas capability, vortex and magnetic stirring.
“As the global leader in the development of technology for peptide synthesis, Biotage continues to develop tools for professionals demanding excellent purity, reliability and high yield.” says Toshiyuki Yachi, Vice President of Marketing. “With the recent introduction of the Initiator Peptide Workstation and Syro Wave, Biotage now offers a manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic peptide synthesis solution including resins and HPLC columns. Biotage is clearly the dedicated leader in providing solutions for peptide professionals.”
