Peptide Specialty Laboratories (PSL) GmbH was founded in September 2000. The company is located within the Technology Park in Heidelberg, Germany. PSL is a spin off of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, where the cofounder and manager of the company, Dr. H.-R. Rackwitz has gained a long time of experience in peptide synthesis and antibody preparation.
The main goal of PSL is based in the production of any kind of peptides from mg to gram amounts and with lengths between 5 and 50 amino acids. All our peptides are HPLC purified and analysed by mass spectrometry. We are also engaged in the syntheses of special peptides with rare amino acids, unnatural amino acids, peptides with fluorescent moieties, and biotinylated peptides. Our production facility runs several peptide synthesizers which are able to synthesize up to 48 peptides in parallel and other continuous flow synthesizers which allow syntheses of long peptides with chain lengths of more than 50 amino acids. In addition, we acquired a microwave assisted peptide synthesizer which enables the production of difficult sequences in short time.
Furthermore we produce bioconjugates between peptides and proteins or column matrices and we are a main contributor of peptide specific antibodies for scientific and industrial research.
Our antibodies are routinely produced in guinea pigs or rabbits but immunisations of other animal species also are available. We are specialized in the preparation of peptide specific antibodies and antibodies which are produced from phosphorylated, acetylated or otherwise modified peptide sequences. We also immunise recombinant proteins which are provided to us by our customers
Our main customers are found within the industry and research community of Germany and the European Community but we also serve any customer around the world. Information about our products and prices can be found on our homepage in the internet.
