What is the main goal of a peptide chemist? Elizabeth Denton, Ph.D., explains how Biotage sees the peptide synthesis workflow and how we focus on shortening the process time for scientists.
The diversity of amino acid side chain functionalities, coupled with secondary structure, gives peptides and proteins their unique properties and activities. However, when it comes to chemically synthesizing peptides or even small proteins, the side chain functionalities can do more harm than good.
Our seasoned peptide chemist Dr. Elizabeth Denton has tried it all when it comes to peptides. In this short video she shows that using DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) in a peptide synthesis workflow is perfectly fine together with the Biotage® V-10 Touch evaporator. Watch her evaporate it in just over eight minutes.
