Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces New Magnetic Beads for Affinity Binding Techniques
Product News Aug 22, 2011
Thermo Fisher Scientific, has announced the availability of Thermo Scientific Pierce Protein A/G Magnetic Beads and Pierce Protein A/G Magnetic IP/Co-IP Kits.
These new products provide a fast, convenient method for manual and automated magnetic isolation and immunoprecipitation (IP) of proteins using affinity binding.
The beads are validated for numerous techniques including IP, co-immunoprecipitation (co-IP), gel electrophoresis, Western blotting and mass spectrometry.
The Pierce® Protein A/G Magnetic Beads are iron oxide particles covalently coated with a monolayer of Protein A/G.
The beads offer a high binding capacity of 55-85 micrograms of rabbit IgG per milligram of magnetic particles, with low non-specific background.
Pierce Protein A/G Magnetic Beads are easily removed from the solution manually using a magnetic stand or by automation using equipment such as the Thermo Scientific KingFisher Flex Instrument.
The Pierce Protein A/G Magnetic Beads are available alone or as part of a comprehensive kit for IP or co-IP methods.
