How to use a scouting column for your peptide purification

Whenever I synthesized a new peptide, I always ran a “scout run” – a small scale injection, usually with an analytical HPLC column – to both get an idea of the crude purity and also to identify a shorter, more optimal gradient for the actual purification.  This strategy is still probably fine when you want to use reversed phase flash chromatography for your purification strategy, but is there a better way?

In today’s post, I’ll discuss using a scouting column to screen gradient conditions prior to peptide purification with reversed phase flash chromatography.
