Biotech Awards 2017

12 | ghp Biotechnology Awards 2017 Best Parkinson’s Disease Research Supply Company - USA rPeptide’s top products include Beta amyloids, Taus, Synucleins, and custom labelled proteins, and their customers include researchers from universities and major companies who focus on AD or Parkinson’s diseases. With offices located both in and around Athens, Georgia, the work undergone by rPeptide has consistently been of the highest quality, as Sandi explains. “Our focus is on providing highly pure recombinant proteins and peptides to our customers with the best quality possible. Our method has been refined through our proprietary platform vector technology which provides us with the means necessary to express and purify difficult proteins. This technology gives us the ability to produce soluble proteins which would usually be insoluble or difficult to purify in a recombinant manner. “With our vector platform, we have the ability to produce any protein that a customer might inquire about, in addition to antibodies that have unique binding properties. We are always in the process of developing new products and bringing new ideas to action.” One of the ways that rPeptide is unique is their ability to provide recombinant proteins expressed with E. coli as the host. They are one of few companies that provide these types of proteins and peptides. However, as Sandi notes, there are some challenges that the company does ultimately face. “Unfortunately, impactful treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases are still in the developmental stage and there are conflicting views on how researchers should develop these therapies. These factors, along with the fact that a single causative agent has not been identified for the diseases, makes it a very challenging area overall. However, although there are areas within this vital industry that seem grey, there’s always a silver lining. “rPeptide is on the verge of opening a facility in Spring of 2017 that will contain all of our laboratory and administration facilities. This new facility along with new additions to our catalogue will lead to great things for us in the future. As always, we will place the utmost importance on providing each and every customer with the highest quality products and exceptional customer service. We want everyone to know that it is always our goal to provide a customer with a high quality experience when they purchase from us.” rPeptide are providers of high quality peptides, reagents, proteins, and antibodies with a focus on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease research, where they also utilize a unique vector technology, allowing them to generate highly pure recombinant soluble proteins and peptides in E. coli. We invited Sandi from rPeptide along to tell us more about the service that they provide. Company: rPeptide Name: Sandi M.
