Peptide Mapping

Service Description

BGI provides LC-MS/MS peptide mapping services to support biopharmaceutical and biotechnology applications. Our Peptide Mapping services are designed to characterize and monitor the molecular details of a therapeutic protein drug at each position in the amino acid sequence1,2. Meanwhile, Disulfide Mapping and Epitope Mapping services are provided as well.

Project Workflow

Sequence Verification

We provide amino acid sequence verification services and PTM mapping for purified proteins. Our service is useful for accurately validating expression of recombinant proteins or identifying process related PTMs on biologic drugs.

Molecular Assessment

We can help you characterize amino acid sequence liability. We provide a Molecular Assessment service to monitor specific amino acid modifications in response to a forced degradation treatment customized to meet your project needs. Our service is optimized for high dynamic range peptide sequence coverage.
