organelle-isolation-dynabeads-sho

Dynabeads® Magnetic Beads can be used to isolate a number of different organelles and organelle-specific proteins. This magnetic separation technology enables the specific isolation of true fractions in small volumes, and can replace time-consuming and labor-intensive density gradient centrifugations.

Advantages include:

  • Rapid, high-purity isolations from crude fractions or fractions of common densities
  • Morphologically intact target organelles can be fixed for EM studies or solubilized directly on the bead surface
  • Immunomagnetically isolated organelles can be assayed by conventional techniques
  • Easy protocol yields high-purity functional organelles

As more and more organelle-specific markers are identified, the corresponding immunomagnetic isolation of subgroups of organelles can be performed. Examples of organelles or organelle fractions that have been isolated with Dynabeads® include exosomesmitochondriaperoxisomeskidney glomeruli, and endondocytic and secretory compartments.
