The application of peptides is wide and varied. Some applications require the use of linear peptides, or simply peptides belonging to the same form and structure, while others will require a mixture of peptides. Depending on your need for the peptide, you may use either one type of peptide or you may need a mixture, in which case, it is imperative to know how to come up with the mixtures the correct way so that you get the results you desire
The genesis of mixing peptides in the right manner is having a good understanding of the peptides that you want to mix. It is important to note that you can only mix peptides that depict the same like or form.
For example, you can mix peptides when they are either all in liquid form or powder form. As such, it is not possible to mix a peptide in liquid form with one in powder form. But in most cases, the peptides will be shipped while in powder form and it will be upon the researcher to know how to dilute them to the proper state before they can go ahead and do the mixing.
In some instances, the peptides will arrive in non-concentrated forms and as such, there may be no need to dilute them in different states. However, you should be very cautious with peptides shipped in such forms since they don’t have long lifespans and if shipment delays, the odds that they will be compromised and may not yield the desired results.
During the process of mixing two peptides in liquid forms, the extraction process must be done with two separate sterile syringes for the right proportions. Once the various proportions are extracted, they should be mixed precisely as directed by the manufacturer in a sterile container.
