A typical cGMP peptide is tested at CPC using the following methods:

  • Appearance
  • Solubility
  • Purity (HPLC, UPLC)
  • Molecular weight (MS)
  • AAA
  • Peptide content
  • Counter-ion content
  • Moisture content (Karl Fisher)
  • Residual solvents
  • Bioburden
  • Endotoxin

Additionally, our QC department is fully equipped and additional analysis can be performed upon request.
