New Products

The PST division of Akina is presenting some new products this week. First we have a set of normal straight chain P(D,L)La to add to the PLGA for those who are after the normal, non-block polymer versions of these products. Unlike every other provider on the market today we have no minimal order so you can buy as much or as little as you like. Also unlike other providers click on the product name and you will see a complete Certificat of Analysis. Our COA's include the GPC and HNMR results from that that exact batch of material so you see all information and full characterization.

On the other end of the spectrum, due to its immense popularity as a custom synthesis product, we are proud to present for the first time as a stock product AI03 which is a Maleimide endcapped (PEG terminus) diblock copolymer Mal-PEG-PLGA. The maleimide affords flexibility as it reacts with thiol units to bond strongly to peptides and other ligands allowing you to decorate the micelle for targeting to specific cells. This particular one is a fairly short-chain 3000Da PEG-5000Da PLGA however other molecular weights can be made on demand and we are looking forward to expanding this product line as well to include other weights.
