3D Secure, also known as Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode or Amex Safekey, is a method of authentication security, which was developed by the Card Schemes to enhance the security of online transactions for all cardholders. It allows only the cardholder to use the card when shopping online.
The three domains referred to in “3D” Secure consist of the cardholder to issuer domain, the merchant to acquiring bank domain and the interbank domain. Very simply, the system authenticates the cardholder before any transaction can take place, by diverting the cardholder to the browser of the bank that issued the card.
The bank then requests a password or One Time Password/PIN (OTP), from the cardholder, which is typically sent to their mobile phones, which will prove that the person undertaking the online transaction is the authenticated cardholder and therefore entitled to use the card.

During the lyophilization process, a nitrogen flush is added to remove any contaminants. This stage of the manufacturing process can affect the appearance of the peptide. Other factors such as the temperature or the leakage of water vapour from the vial can cause the contents to stick to the side of the vial. Although it may not be visible to the human eye, all our vials are filled automatically and contain exactly the same quantity of peptide.
Peptides vary in the degree to which they are soluble in bacteriostatic water. This is especially true of ones which contain multiple hydrophobic amino acid residues. If you have difficulties in dissolving the peptide, we recommend you use a small quantity of dilute (approximately 10%) of aqueous acetic acid for basic peptides or aqueous ammonia for acidic peptides. The addition of these liquids should improve the dissolution of the peptide.
