Apex 396 Parallel Synthesizer
The Apex 396 Automated Multiple Peptide Synthesizer is the established market leader in parallel peptide synthesizers and single peptide synthesizers. This peptide instrument is ideal for producing drug discovery libraries, alanine scans, epitope mapping and peptide parallel libraries. Synthesis scales range from 1 mg up to 20 grams.
Due to the unique design of the Teflon® reactor assembly, the resin stays at the bottom of the reactor, allowing it to stay in full contact with the reaction solution. Because of this, the resin does not stick to the sides of the reactor, thus the Apex 396 parallel peptide synthesizer produces higher yields of complete peptides with fewer deletion impurities.
The nitrogen-assisted bottom filtration quickly and thoroughly empties the reactor while maintaining an inert atmosphere, resulting in quick emptying. This process, in combination with fast delivery, minimizes the decomposition of the peptide resin due to extended contact with acid or base and allows quick, thorough and efficient washing of the resin to prevent impurities due to carryover.
The Apex 396 is highly suited for resin-supported chemistry, peptoid synthesis by the submonomer method, PNA synthesis etc .
