Suitable for peptide chemists synthesizing peptides, peptoids, PNA and peptidomimetics, including extremely difficult modifications, the Initiator+ Alstra is a fully automated, single channel, programmable microwave peptide synthesizer.
The system’s robotic liquid handler and precise digital syringe pumps reduce reagent and solvent consumption, thus reducing cost and minimizing waste. With a working volume from as low as 0.6 mL, it is well placed for small scale microwave peptide synthesis, especially when the use of expensive building blocks is required e.g. PNA. Programmable via a large 10″ touch screen with drag and drop functionality for optimizing pre-installed or user defined methods, the built-in wizard makes programming a synthesis sequence effortless and a calculation table, which is generated, provides the quantities of reagents required, allowing the user to very quickly go from an idea to execution.
