Proteins are complex molecules that consist of one or more chains of amino acids and are derived from biological processes. Peptides consist of shorter strings of amino acids typically comprising 2-50 amino acids. These large molecules differ from each other in their size, molecular structure and physiochemical properties. The differences between proteins allow for characterization through analytical techniques.
Primera’s subject matter experts and wide array of instrumentation offer many services to analyze your protein or peptide. Our team has greater than 25 years of experience characterizing proteins including method development, transfer, and validation. Release and stability testing services include critical identity, purity and potency assays.
Primera will support your project through all phases of development and commercialization. We serve many clients with various needs that require expertise in mass spectrometry, ELISA, flow cytometry and other assays for recombinant proteins and peptides.
Protein characterization includes identification and quantification of the major and minor components. Our scientists will quantify both process and product related impurities. Primera utilizes state of the art instrumentation for analysis such as High Resolution LC/MS, Flow Cytometry (FACSCAN), qPCR, Multiple types of Plate Readers, Protein Simple iCIEF, etc.
