Bubendorf, Switzerland: –Peptide technology specialist Bachem AG will be a prominent presence at the upcoming 10th International Peptide Symposium (IPS) and 55th Japanese Peptide Symposium (JPS) in the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto.

The appearance comes months after Bachem boosted its presence in Asia by establishing Bachem Japan K.K. as a new subsidiary, based in Tokyo with connections to other Asian countries including South Korea, China and Taiwan.

Pioneering partner for peptides

Bachem will exhibit from Booth 11 at the Rohm Theatre and Miyako Messe in Kyoto. Under its ‘Pioneering Partner for Peptides’ banner, Bachem will present its comprehensive catalog of off-the-shelf biochemicals, along with its exclusive custom synthesis services for research labs and pharma and biotech industries worldwide.

Bachem will also show IPS 2018 how it supports its customers in the pursuit of groundbreaking discoveries further advancing science and medicine, particularly in the field of biopharmaceuticals.

State of Art SPPS

Recent Bachem advances include applications of Fmoc solid phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) for acetylation of peptides.

In Kyoto, senior Bachem Project Chemist, Dr. Alexander Kleinsmann, will deliver a presentation on “Highly pure Octreotide – Development and Scale-Up of a State-of-the-art SPPS Process” at a Bachem-hosted Lunchtime Seminar (12:45 – 1:25 pm) on Day Two of the conference (December 4).

Dr. Kleinsmann will be part of a strong Bachem team in Kyoto that will also include Gary Hu, Vice President, Business Development Asia, and Mashiko Satoshi, Head of Business Development, Japan.

Growing Asian business

The Bachem stand will also present its innovative small molecule APIs and proprietary processes, including a selective chemical glycosylation service that can be applied across a wide range of peptides with potential scale up to industrial production.

Bachem is now making advance appointments for face-to-face meetings at IPS/JPS (See Resources for contact information).
