Biotage unveils Initiator+ microwave synthesiser
Initiator+ microwave synthesiser
Biotage has introduced the Initator+, a microwave synthesiser that is designed for chemistry professionals who need to enable difficult reactions or to improve yields on critical reaction steps.
The system features a simple and intuitive interface, an integrated computer control system and a large touchscreen, allowing the user to drive reactions to as high as 300C and up to 30 bar pressure.
The Initiator+ also offers an option for the use of a fibre-optic temperature measurement device for in situ reaction monitoring.
The expanded pressure range of up to 30 bar allows for increased flexibility in the choice of solvents.
Low-boiling-point solvents can now be utilised at higher temperatures and reactions performed at maximum speed to achieve best possible yield with higher pressure.
The Initiator+ was developed as an upgradeable platform with automation options readily available.
Users can connect the SP Wave peptide synthesis module and the Robot Eight kit to perform microwave-assisted peptide synthesis with vortex mixing.
The Initator+ can perform traditional organic synthesis as well as peptide and peptidomimetics research.
The Initiator+ SP Wave microwave peptide synthesiser from Biotage is a development tool for chemists synthesising peptides, peptidomimetics and small molecules using single or multi-step procedures.
Biotage has announced a collaborative research agreement with The Laboratory of Peptide and Protein Chemistry and Biology (Peptlab) located in Florence, Italy.
Biotage has introduced two new instruments that utilise positive pressure for solid-phase extraction (SPE) of analytes in a wide variety of applications.
Biotage has added to its range of sample preparation products with Evolute Wax, a mixed-mode weak anion exchanger developed for the extraction of strongly acidic analytes from aqueous samples.
Biotage has introduced the Biotage Initiator Peptide Workstation for manual microwave-assisted peptide synthesis.
