A game changer in process development and manufacturing of peptides



Optimize your process development, greatly reducing the time and resources spent. Easily scale up the synthesis using the same synthesis method based on linear flow rates and optimized parameter settings.

PeptiPilot is transforming the way peptides are produced, greatly saving costs, resources, and time spent compared to traditional batch reactor technology.

PeptiPilot Benchtop Flowthrough Peptide Synthesizer

A flexible and fully automated peptide synthesizer

PeptiPilot is a fully automated solid-phase peptide synthesis instrument using flowthrough column technology. It is a compact, pump-driven system for small-scale synthesis on a scale of 0.1-12 mmol. The synthesis is performed in the column on the resin of your choice, starting from 1% cross-linking to low/non-swellable polymer supports. The method developed can then be transferred to a production-scale PeptiPro instrument. 


PeptiPilot is designed for synthesis process development and small-scale production of peptides. It is constructed to meet the needs of various synthesis chemistries. Some key characteristics of the system are: 


  • State-of-the-art flexibility of individual cycles in synthesis methods, chemistry, and scale.

  • Use the same reagents, resins, solvents, and reagents, as you normally would in SPPS.

  • Cost-efficient and high-quality synthesis with high purity, yield, and reproducibility.

  • Easy scale-up by using linear flow rates and fixed column volumes for washing. 

  • Five column positions and up to 27 amino acid containers.

  • Continuous real-time monitoring with a diode-array detector (including full UV spectrum) and conductivity sensors.

  • A built-in heater allows for synthesis at elevated temperatures up to 50°C by heating the liquid.  

  • Works with PeptiSoft synthesis management software which is designed according to 21 CFR Part 11 and GAMP5.

  • Swelling and shrinking of resin handled by optimised template methods for each column size.

  • Installation and Operational Qualification (IQ/OQ) documentation is available.

  • A separate mixer allows amino acid pre-activation before coupling. 

Overview PeptiPilo

Benefits compared to batch reactor technology

Benefits compard to batch reacto
Time Savings icon

50-90% reduction in synthesis time and improvement in productivity by up to 10x. Complete the synthesis of a peptide in 1-3 days instead of 3-4 weeks. This leads to an increase in productivity, improved factory capacity, cost decrease, and improved lead time to customers.

Purity Increase Icon
Cost Savings Icon

Improved product purity and yield (~15%). Obtain more product at a lower production cost!

Save costs by reducing solvent consumption by 50-70%. With a cost of around 5 USD/Liter, this leads to savings of millions of USD per year.

Scalability Icon
Sustainability Icon

Continuous real-time monitoring increases synthesis control and allows automation for each synthesis step. Manual sampling is no longer needed.

Easier scale-up saves further on time and costs. Perform process development on a pilot scale and use the same optimized synthesis parameters for large-scale synthesis (up to 5 mol).

Improved carbon and environmental footprint. Reduction in solvent consumption results in up to 50% reduction of CO2 emissions, which can lead to a reduction of 100 tons of CO2 emitted per year per instrument.
