Protease inhibitor cocktails and tablets target serine, cysteine, and aspartic acid proteases, and aminopeptidases. Metalloproteases are inhibited by the addition of EDTA, which is available in a separate vial in the liquid format, but included in the tablet format.
Thermo Scientific Halt liquid cocktails are available in 100 μL single-use format or 1, 5 and 10 mL pack sizes; the Thermo Scientific Pierce tablets come in two sizes for 10 or 50 mL volumes, and Thermo Scientific Pierce capsules are ideal for volumes up to 500 mL, to accommodate different volume and pricing needs. These tablets and capsules are formulated to dissolve quickly into a clear solution, and are fully compatible with all Pierce protein assays.

Protease inhibition by cell and tissue type
Figure 1. The tablet formulation inhibits protease activity in different tissue lysates and cell lines. Protease activity of cell and tissue lysates (1 mg/mL) was determined in the presence and absence of prepared Pierce Protease Inhibitor Tablet. The percentage of protease inhibition is indicated.
