macroWAVE

SRC reactor for cleavage of peptide or protein chains

» protein hydrolysis in a few minutes «

Conventional devices for sample hydrolysis are often a time-consuming process. Our microwave hydrolysis in the SRC Reactor speeds things up considerably. The use of microwave hydrolysis for the three classical processes leads to optimal control of the hydrolysis conditions. Best possible accuracy, reproducibility, speed and stability are the result of your protein hydrolysis.

SRC gas phase hydrolysis

if waiting is no option

The time saved by using macroWAVE is enormous in protein hydrolysis as well as in other areas. Our SRC reactor helps accelerate the process of hydrolysis with microwave technology and pressure. Many other advantages, from precise repeatability to better accuracy, make your daily work easier. Instead of running the digestion reactions overnight, our SRC reactor can achieve comparable or better results in minutes.

This increases the digestion efficiency impressively. Especially with hydrophobic proteins, the time advantage is greatest. Up to 30 samples can be used in one run, which means that an extremely high sample throughput can be realised.

SRC liquid hydrolysis

cleavage in perfection

Protein hydrolysis with macroWAVE enables one of the fastest and most reproducible cleavage of peptide or protein chains on the market. The hydrolysis time can be reduced from several hours to minutes. In addition, you get a more homogeneous and controllable result and need fewer tools and instruments.

All peptide compounds of a protein chain can be cleaved – the resulting free amino acids can be quantified by amino acid analysis. The proteins can be isolated from food and feed (meat products, dairies, agriculture and beverage industry), from living organisms (pharmacy, biotechnology…) or for diagnostic purposes, from blood and other human and animal samples.
