High Performance Resins and Reagents for Solid Phase Peptide and Organic Chemistry
News Mar 27, 2007
Activotec has been appointed by Matrix Innovation Inc. as European distributor for its range of high performance resins and supported reagents for solid phase peptide and organic chemistry.
In addition to a comprehensive catalogue of more than 300 different standard products including resins, scavengers, supported reagents and preloaded resins - Activotec will also be able to offer European researchers custom synthesis of solid phase chemistry resins.
Chris Littlewood, CEO of Activotec, commented "The Matrix Innovation range of resins and supported reagents perfectly compliments our own expertise in the design and production of novel peptides and proteins for research purposes". He added “We are particularly excited about ChemMatrix® resin, this new patented 100% PEG resin offers tremendous advantages over polystyrene resin for synthesis of long or complex peptides".
"Activotec's considerable experience of working closely with European peptide and organic chemistry laboratories was particularly appealing to us" said Rock Therrien, President of Matrix Innovation Inc. He added "We believe customers will benefit from the stability of local pricing and Activotec's commitment to provide a wide selection of resins and reagents on fast delivery from stock".
Tuberculosis (TB), an ancient and notoriously difficult disease to treat, has killed millions through the course of human history; and the antibiotics that have been used to fight the disease in recent history are becoming less and less effective. In the face of this reality, researcher Prof. Dennis Wright has improved upon a new way to thwart the tricky pathogen, mycobacterium tuberculosis.READ MORE
Researchers have solved the structures of the cancer-promoting enzymes USP25 and USP28, and identified significant differences in their activities. This knowledge provides the molecular basis for the development of new and highly specific anti-cancer drugs, with a low risk of side-effects.READ MORE
