Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer

Liberty Blue™

Synthesize peptides more efficiently than ever before.


The Liberty Blue™ Automated Microwave Peptide Synthesizer is the best selling peptide synthesizer in the world. It features a 4-minute cycle time along with a 90% solvent reduction based on High Efficiency Solid Phase Peptide synthesis (HE-SPPS) developed in 2013. This system is utilized in hundreds of laboratories worldwide and provides unparalleled peptide quality based on its unique methodology and use of microwave energy. The Liberty Blue features the latest in engineering for fluidic deliveries, true internal temperature feedback control, and software control with 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
