Assorted protein sample preparation and dialysis cassettes

Many salts and detergents used in protein extraction reagents adversely affect protein function and stability or interfere with downstream analysis. Therefore, it is necessary to remove contaminants following cell lysis or subsequent sample processing, such as protein purification. We offer a variety of resins and specialty devices that efficiently remove salts and small molecule contaminants, such as detergents, from samples. They are offered in multiple flexible formats and are designed to provide efficient and consistent performance providing high sample recoveries. In many cases, downstream sample analysis may also require proteins and other biomolecules to be at an appropriate concentration to ensure successful examination. We offer a wide range of ultrafiltration concentrator devices that accommodate a wide range of sample volumes to remove excess liquids and buffers from samples, thereby increasing protein concentrations. To remove small molecules such as unconjugated fluorescent dyes, biotin, excess crosslinkers, and other reaction by-products, Pierce Dye and Biotin Removal Spin Columns can be used to achieve exceptional cleanup results.
