ORPEGEN stands for Organic - Peptidic - Genetic. Founded in Heidelberg in 1982, the GmbH ORPEGEN has its roots in customer dedicated contract research and development as well as the production of APIs from small molecules to peptides.
Furthermore, ORPEGEN has a wealth of experience in the GMP-compliant manufacturing of peptide drug substances for customer’s clinical trials.
Only high quality amino acid derivatives lead to high quality peptides. We therefore specialized right from the start in producing high quality amino acid derivatives. The affiliation ORPEGEN Peptide Chemicals GmbH uses this know-how for selling and trading since 2016 our valuable products ex stock worldwide.
When demanded by specific chemical requirements we are also cooperating with German and other contract manufacturers to serve our customer’s needs.
We manufacture and sell amino acids and derivatives with the common protection groups Fmoc and Boc as well as the more special Z- and Ddz-protection groups. The latter is a very acid-labile protection group that can be also cleaved easily by UV-irradiation in a continuous procedure without side reactions.
We also offer ultra-pure (>99% HPLC) and certified fine chemicals in addition to special amino acids and custom preparations to provide you with high quality educts for your experiments.
All our products are accompanied by an analytical- and BSE/TSE certificate and are not intended for human use, but for laboratory use only.
