On one of the top floors in the Baylor College of Medicine Neurological Research Institute, I visited the Center for Drug Discovery and learn from the Director and Medicinal Chemistry Leader, Dr. Justin Anglin, about muscle cachexia as well as their innovative projects focused on male contraceptives. We were able to take a tour of their state-of-the-art lab after which includes a full suite of Biotage products, something Dr. Anglin uses every day.
PeptiDream Inc. relocated their head office in August 2017 and established its new research center in the Kawasaki City International Strategic Center. The expanded facility is expected to spawn innovative new drugs. The base instrumentation is provided by Biotage. R&D Director Keichi Masuya and his staff elaborate on the development.
Peptide chemists typically use solutions containing high percentages of trifluoracetic acid (TFA) mixed with small volumes of various scavengers. These solutions can be readily evaporated using Biotage® V-10 Touch using the “Volatile” method. Despite the presence of water and other high boiling scavengers, this method is most efficient.
Biotage® V-10 Touch rapidly dries samples dissolved in both aqueous and organic solvents. Combined with the Gilson liquid handling robot automatically transfers your purified samples to V-10 Touch for sequential automated evaporation. This brochure lists all evaporation vials, adapters and accessories.
The tasks carried out during the Preventive Maintenance (PM) visit shall include servicing the listed components and a final check, which is based on factory acceptance and qualification tests. These two procedures constitute a Gilson Preventive Maintenance Plan.
In medicinal chemistry, organic synthesis will generate by-products with similar chemistry to the product. Separating these impurities from the product often becomes a challenge that often only prep HPLC can achieve. In this poster, we discuss how using sample dry loading with a cation exchange scavenger media with flash chromatography improves product purity by removing many of the impurities.
Synthetic chemistry is hard enough; purifying the reaction product can be even more challenging. If your reaction mixture shows you made your target but also many byproducts, what do you do? You can resynthesize using different reaction conditions, use advanced work-up procedures, or you can purify using high-performance flash chromatography.
Flash Chromatography is the primary tool used by medicinal chemists for reaction mixture purification. Over the past 10 or so years, the use of reversed-phase flash chromatography for reaction mixture purification has increased dramatically due to both chromatographic and non-chromatographic reasons.
Biotage has developed a range of tools to improve the peptide synthesis workflow, from synthesis of crude peptides through to the final purified product. These solutions make your workflow more efficient and improve the quality of peptides you synthesize. Our workflow solutions are used in pharma, biotech, CRO and academic laboratories throughout the world.
User Report: V-10, Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma. Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma is recognized worldwide for its highly creative drug discovery program for treating neuropsychiatric disorders, and in specialized areas with high unmet medical needs. Its Genomic Science Laboratories installed the V-10 evaporation system in 2008, which has been used extensively for drying in-house compounds. We asked two researchers at that facility, Mr. Masahiko Ikeda and Mr. Fumitaka Nishino, about their use of the V-10 in their daily work.
Tokyo based PeptiDream Inc. is a company specializing in non-standard peptide therapeutics containing non-standard amino acids, and conducts research and development of new drug candidates. PeptiDream uses the peptide synthesizers Syro I and Biotage® Initiator+ Alstra™ for the synthesis of various kinds of peptides to support drug discovery and development.
