Proteinase K Protein Digestion

SMART Digest kits enable you to characterize and quantitate proteins faster, easier, and quicker than ever before. This version of the kit uses proteinase K, which cleaves the peptide bond adjacent to the carboxyl group of aliphatic and aromatic amino acids with blocked alpha amino groups.

Easy and Simple
  • Significantly increased speed of sample processing
  • Simple process
  • Easily automate entire protocol for high-throughput processing
Reliable Results
  • Increased reproducibility over existing protocols
  • Higher sensitivity
  • Higher data confidence
Significantly Reduces Sample Preparation Time

Typically it takes less than 60 minutes (dependent on sample complexity) to achieve full digestion, whereas an in-solution digest can take up to 24 hours.

Cleaner Samples

Reduction in the number of chemicals used and the immobilized proteinase K design helps mitigate against chemically induced post translational modifications (PTMs) and autolysis. The results are easier to interpret.

Couple with SOLAµ SPE Plates for Desalting

When used with the SMART Digest for desalting, Thermo Scientific™ SOLAµ™ SPE solid phase extraction plates provide a fast, easy-to-use, robust, and easily automatable sample preparation solution for analysis of biomolecules.
