Peptide Sterility Testing


Sterility is important if peptides are intended for use in cellular assays or for development of cell & immunotherapies or vaccines. Although peptide synthesis is performed under low bioburden conditions we can not guarantee sterility without further testing. For sterility testing lyophilized peptides are dissolved in water and subsequently incubated in tryptic soy broth. Subsequent to incubation turbidity is determined as indicator for contaminating microorganisms (aerobic microorganisms, yeast & fungi).
