Microwave Peptide Vials
The microwave peptide vial is available in two different sizes; 2-5 mL for 75-150 µmol scale or 10-20 mL for 250-500 µmol scale (depending on resin loading). The complete vial is easily assembled and consists of a glass vial, HDPE frit, check valve and snap cap with septum.
The wash station consists of a specially designed height adjustable vacuum head on a stand. When connected to a vacuum pump, this allows the microwave peptide vial to be easily emptied when positioned on the vacuum head. Material can be collected in a standard GL 45 laboratory glass bottle, 50 mL centrifuge tube or even a round bottom flask.
• Economically Synthesize Difficult Sequences Use microwave irradiation and standard reagents to synthesize difficult sequences that are problematic or even impossible to synthesize using standard methods.
• Faster Synthesis Reduce cycle times by using microwave irradiation and fast manual washing and emptying.
• Versatile Allows solution and solid phase peptide synthesis, cleavage of peptides and post-synthetic modification of peptides using microwave irradiation. The Workstation can also be used to perform other types of chemistry, e.g. organic, PNA and peptoid synthesis.
• Reduce Costs When using expensive reagents you can manually add the exact amount of reagent while minimizing waste and costs.
