Peptides are simply short strings of amino acids typically compromising of 2–50 amino acids.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins.
Peptides work by manipulating or replicating natural functions, without fundamentally changing them. Naturally occurring peptides have many different functions from hormones, growth factors, neurotransmitters and more. Therefore, the use of peptides for research provides a method of targeting a wide range of cells and manipulating their response for the benefit of scientific research.
Peptides have been studied around the world for a number of reasons such as but not limited to the following. Click the icon to read more.
All orders are dispatched from within the U.K. This allows super fast delivery inside the U.K and smooth transit into the whole of Europe or the rest of the world.
If you are looking to buy bigger quantities on a regular basis then we can potentially look at discounted rates. The amount of discount will be based on quantity and regularity of ordering. Please contact us for further details.
Each time peptides go through a defrost and re-freeze cycle they denature slightly, regardless of whether they are in their freeze-dried or reconstituted state. Thus it is best to avoid defrost/re-freeze cycles if you can. Our peptides are stored at -38 in high quality alarm monitored lab freezers to ensure the freshness is as high as possible.
All orders in a discreet fashion with no exterior markings, Items will be secured and wrapped correctly to avoid any transit damage. Once the discrete package had been packed it will be labelled with nothing other than your address.
Purity of a peptide is determined by the amount of the target peptide by HPLC at 214nm. This is where the peptide bond absorbs. Residual salts and water will not be detected by UV Spectrophotometer. Impurities that are usually found after peptide synthesis may consist of deletion sequences, truncated sequences and deprotected sequences.
