Quality Control & Analyses

Each specialty peptide is analyzed by LC-MS, MALDI-MS or HPLC to confirm its identity and quality.
Optional peptide analyses are:

  • AAA (amino acid analysis)
  • NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance)
  • UHPLC (Ultra-HPLC)
  • Residual solvent and water determination
  • Solubility or stability testing

For further QC/QA options, e.g. for clinical applications please check our Clinical Peptides page. For detailed information on specific peptide modifications and peptide labels please click on the icons below!

Testimonials for specialty peptide synthesis

"Our research relies heavily on developing robust high-throughput screens with fluorescent peptides. We have found that JPT's are the best on the market because the signal-to-noise ratio is very high, providing the sensitivity we need for the screens. Their peptides always perform well. In addition, the knowledge, wonderful customer support, and fast turnaround time provided by JPT have been invaluable in helping us develop the best peptides for our assays."

Prof. Carla Koehler, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA
