Small Scale Peptide Synthesis
***Effective June 28, 2013, the Keck Biotechnology Resource Laboratory will discontinue the following services: Amino Acid Analysis, Protein Sequencing (Edman Degradation), Large- and Small-Scale Peptide Synthesis. Please contact us for the last dates for order or sample submission.
Small scale, Fmoc peptide synthesis is carried out on a Rainin Symphony instrument that provides on instrument cleavage of the peptide from the resin. This service is available for peptides that generally range from 7 to 30 residues in length. Since the degree of difficulty in synthesizing peptides is length, composition, and sequence dependent; some peptides within this range will prove to be difficult to synthesize. Conversely, many peptides can be synthesized via this service that are longer than 30 residues. If you are contemplating requesting the small scale synthesis of a peptide that is longer than 30 residues we suggest you first email its sequence to us so that we can advise you regarding its suitability for our small scale peptide synthesis service.
