Peptide ordering guide
Eight aspects to consider when ordering a peptideTo learn more, click on the corresponding icon below – Peptide ordering guide To ensure accurate measurements, make sure that quantities of peptides are given as net weight rather than gross weight generally stated by regular suppliers. Compare analytical methods used to assess peptides. Purity should be determined on HPLC analytical system using columns with 4 µm resolution or below. Ask for several aliquots to prevent losing peptide material when initially facing a difficulty in solubilizing the peptide. The ultimate way to ensure stability of peptides is to have them stored under inert gaz. It is recommanded to store lyophilized peptides at -20°C. The shelf-life of peptides in solution is very limited. Peptides that undergo multiple freeze-thaw cycles are susceptible to degradation.
Choose the appropriate delivery service to deal with research deadlines and make sure that peptides are delivered with a certificate of analysis that attest the quality of the products in compliance to the requested specifications.
