Peptide therapeutic agents are enjoying increasing success but they are challenging to produce and, not least, to purify. Purity requirements are, in fact, approaching those for small molecules. Synthesis generates a crude mixture containing failed sequences and chemical variants. 


We asked an expert

We asked a seasoned industry expert who currently works in this area and who has more than 35 years experience in chromatography, including the resin business, drug discovery, scaling-up and GMP production of biological pharmaceuticals:

  • How do you best plan and carry out a purification process for a synthetic therapeutic peptide?
  • What are the most critical and fundamental factors to focus on and where do most processes, or people, go wrong?
