Innovations in Peptide Synthesis Attract 29th Eps Visitors

Jan 22 2007

At the recent 29th European Peptide Symposium (EPS) held in Gdansk, Poland, Activotec reported high visitor traffic drawn by the international launch of its Activo-P11 Peptide Synthesiser and a poster reporting on proprietary techniques in peptide backbone modification used to develop modified GLP-1 analogues.

Marking its global debut at EPS the Activo-P11 Peptide Synthesiser is an easy to use and affordable instrument for synthesis of very high quality peptides. Designed and manufactured in Europe the new fully automated and enclosed system performs a wide range of chemistries to synthesise peptides of any length in the 0.1 1.0 mmol. scale. Combined with very easy-to-use software, designed by chemists for chemists, the Activo-P11 was one of the most visited attractions at the exhibition.

Particular interest was also shown in a new technical poster describing a study in which it Activotec had applied its proprietary technologies in peptide backbone modification to develop a set of modified GLP-1 analogues which have been stabilised against proteolysis, yet are at least as active as native GLP-1 in both promoting insulin release in cell assays and lowering blood glucose in small animal models. These exciting results drew considerable attention from biotech and pharmaceutical industry researchers involved in the diabetes therapeutic area.

Other products on show included the recently introduced PLS Organic Synthesizer - an easy-to-use and affordable tool for parallel solution and solid phase chemistry.
