Improving peptide processes with Michael Karney

In a recent interview with TIDES TV, Michael J. Karney, CEM Life Science Product Manager, spoke about the wasteful, time consuming optimization involved in the current peptide synthesis process.  Both peptide research and production face a sluggish and wasteful workflow which can take weeks or months to complete while requiring a great deal of time, money, and resources.  Producing a compound quickly, efficiently, and reliably are central to solid phase peptide synthesis research and production.  Being able to speed up the synthetic process while providing higher purity products allows chemists to apply a more rational optimization strategy – eliminate unnecessary steps and reduce waste, time, and resource use.  CEM’s latest peptide synthesizer, the Liberty PRIME™, utilizes new hardware advancements and new chemistry methodology in one system to become the ultimate tool for peptide chemists.
