What is a Micro-Scale Peptide?

Micro-Scale Peptides are Custom Peptides synthesized by the fastest and most effective synthesis technology currently on the market!

How expensive is a Micro-Scale Peptide?

Peptide price starts at 7 US$ / €.

How much material do I receive?

50 to 250 ug per peptide

How quickly can I get my Micro-Scale Peptides?

Up to 10 000 peptides will be delivered within 10 working days.

How will Micro-Scale Peptides be synthesized?

Micro-Scale Peptides are synthesized on planar cellulose surfaces in a stepwise manner from the C- to the N-terminus using preactivated Fmoc amino acids.
This synthetical method is called "SPOT synthesis" and guarantees the synthesis of high numbers of peptides in very short times.

How is the C-terminal end of Micro-Scale Peptides defined?

Standard Micro-Scale Peptides consist of an additional glycine acid or amide at the C-terminus, due to technical reasons.
However, individual C-terminal amino acids are also feasible at added costs (minimum order: 384 peptides).

What is the purity of Micro-Scale Peptides?

All Micro-Scale Peptides are synthesized as non-purified materials.
The purity of each Micro-Scale Peptides depends on its primary sequence.

How long can a Micro-Scale Peptide be?

Since purity of Micro-Scale Peptides drops with increasing length we do not recommend Micro-Scale Peptides longer than 20 amino acids.

How are Micro-Scale Peptide QC’d?

3% of Micro-Scale Peptides will be analyzed by LC-MS. In addition, JPT performs LC-MS of technical control sequences for each synthesis batch.
Additional LC-MS analyses requested by customer cost 26 € /$ per peptide.

What is the delivery format of Micro-Scale Peptides?

Micro-Scale Peptides are delivered ready-to-use in 96-well microplates (one freeze dried peptide per well, not immobilized, ready-to-dilute).
Alternatively, peptide can be provided in 384 well plates, deep well plates of micronic rack tubes.

Is there a minimum order size?

Minimum order size is 24 peptides.
For peptides with individual C-terminal amino acids, minimum order size is 384 peptides.
