vivitide, a global leader in custom peptides and antibody services for the life science and biotech industry, was formed by the merger of New England Peptide (founded 1998) and Peptides International (founded in 1983).

Our focus is on helping researchers around the globe in their drug discovery, pre-clinical and clinical development activities with our combined 50+ years of peptide chemistry knowhow and experience. With exceptional customer service, our employees take pride in being part of a vibrant life science community.

Headquartered in Gardner, MA, with significant operations in Louisville, KY, vivitide is a leading provider of custom peptide synthesis services, custom antibodies, catalog peptides and biochemicals to academia, pharmaceutical, biotech, and diagnostic companies worldwide.

Well known for delivering the highest quality of products and manufacturing capabilities ranging from mg to kg, vivitide has furthermore the unique expertise in complex peptide synthesis, such as RGD peptides. The manufacturing of personalized peptides and throughput production are as important to us as antigen design, antibody purification, and custom peptide-antibody conjugation.

We look forward to partnering with you.
