Biotage Announces Peptide Research Collaboration with the Laboratory of Peptide and Protein Chemistry and Biology in Florence, Italy

06-Jun-2011 - Sweden

Biotage announced a collaborative research agreement with The Laboratory of Peptide & Protein Chemistry & Biology (PeptLab) located in Florence, Italy. The peptide research facility, led by Professor Anna Maria Papini, has agreed to contribute technical input towards the future development of Biotage related products as well as provide training facilities for demonstrating Biotage’s range of peptide synthesis, purification and resin products.

PeptLab is an interdepartmental structure of the University of Florence, located at the Polo Scientifico e Tecnologico in Sesto Fiorentino, founded in 2004 by Professor Paolo Rovero (Dept. of Pharmaceutical Sciences), Professor Anna Maria Papini and Dr. Mario Chelli (Dept. of Organic Chemistry ‘Ugo Schiff’), and Professor Francesco Lolli (Dept. of Neurological Sciences).

Since 2009, the PeptLab proof-of-concept incorporated the French Laboratory, SOSCO of the University of Cergy-Pontoise (where expertise in glycol-chemistry and fluorine chemistry are present). This was made possible thanks to a Chaire d'Excellence provided to Prof. Papini and financial support from the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche, with the idea of organizing a European Innovation Network to introduce a “Quality Approach” as an innovative strategy for R&D activities in Academic Laboratories and SMEs, providing Good Practice Guidance initially in the field of peptide-based diagnostics.
