Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer

Person operating the Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer

Requires user training

Our Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer is a CEM Liberty Blue,  located in LBRB 553J.
Features include

  • Peptide synthesis from 0.005 - 5 mmol scale.
  • Cycle times as low as 4 min (0.1 mmol scale).
  • Reaction vessels suitable for standard and high-swelling resins of 100-250 mesh.
  • Modifiable cycles for use with most peptide coupling reagents and deprotection solutions (optimized for DIC/Oxyma/Piperidine).
  • Microwave-assisted SPPS, up to 90 °C.

Included in the usage are standard amino acids, dimethylformamide, DIC, Oxyma, and piperidine. Necessary consumables are available in the Core for their pass-through costs. Resins are the user's responsibility.

User training fee

User training is carried out by core staff and includes 24-hour usage of the Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer. User training usually takes 90 minutes.

The CEM Liberty Blue requires a special type of conical tube for the amino acid solutions. The use of these tubes is mandatory.

Fritted syringes and caps can be used for storage and further processing of the resin after synthesis. Their use is optional.
