Thermo Scientific Zeba desalting products contain proprietary high-performance resins with exceptional desalting and protein-recovery characteristics. They can help process even very dilute protein samples, with high levels of protein recovery and greater than 95% retention (removal) of salts and other small molecules.
- High performance—proprietary resin enables excellent protein recovery and efficient contaminant removal
- Flexible—available in spin columns, filter spin plates, and cartridges for a range of needs
- Fast—no fraction screening or waiting for protein to emerge by gravity flow
- Economical—cost-effective products that offer great performance

Compare Zeba Spin Desalting Column performance
Figure 1. Better performance with Thermo Scientific Zeba Spin Desalting Columns. Zeba Spin Desalting Columns provide excellent protein recovery while providing minimal sample dilution over a wider range of sample concentrations and volumes compared to alternative products. Zeba Spin Desalting Columns, 0.5 mL (7K MWCO)(Product # 89882), GE SpinTrap G-25 and Bio-Rad Micro BioSpin 6 spin columns were used to desalt 40, 80 and 120 μL samples of a HeLa lysate at a concentration of 0.2 and 1 mg/mL. Desalting was performed according to the manufacturers’ recommended protocols. Protein recovery was analyzed by SDS-PAGE. For each electrophoresis gel, an aliquot of starting sample equal to 1 μg of HeLa lysate was loaded in lane 1 as the load control; all other desalted samples were loaded in the gel at the same volume as the load control. Differences in intensity between lanes are a combination of protein recovery and sample dilution caused by desalting.
