JenKem Technology provides high quality heterobifunctional polyethylene glycol derivatives (PEGs) with high purity and low polydispersity.
JenKem Technology’s heterobifunctional PEG derivatives are generally employed as crosslinking agents or as spacers between two different chemical entities. The PEG moiety in the heterobifunctional PEG derivatives provides water solubility, biocompatibility, and flexibility to the linker. Linear heterobifunctional PEG derivatives have the following general structure:
where X and Y are two different functional reactive groups.
JenKem Technology’s multi-arm heterofunctional PEG Derivatives are also useful as linkers for Antibody-Drug Conjugates. ADCs conjugated via heterobifunctional PEGs exhibit improved water solubility and PK/PD profile.
Heterobifunctional PEG products with molecular weights and functional groups not listed in our online catalog may be available by custom synthesis. Please inquire at email@example.com about pricing and availability of custom heterobifunctional PEGs.
JenKem Technology provides GMP grade PEG derivatives and bulk orders via custom synthesis, offering the opportunity to match customers’ special quality requirements. JenKem Technology is capable of development and synthesis of a wide range of GMP PEG derivatives starting at 200g up to 40 kg or greater batches, under ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified quality management system, following ICH Q7A guidelines.
