Best Ways to Remove Detergents in Protein Samples

Posted by The Protein Man on May 21, 2019 2:30:00 PM

While detergents play a vital role in separating proteins from the hydrophobic portions of the cell membrane during extraction and sample preparation, they need to be removed after successfully serving their purpose to prevent them from interfering with downstream applications (e.g., IEF, ELISA, protease digestion of proteins).

Different Types of Extraction Buffers and When to Use Them

Posted by The Protein Man on May 14, 2019 2:30:00 PM

Successful biochemical analysis heavily relies on the effective extraction of biologically active proteins from source materials (e.g., cell and tissue samples). Thus, you need to have an excellent working knowledge of your target protein(s) and use the appropriate extraction buffers for a given experimental design to ensure optimal protein recovery.
