The ProteaPrep Zwitterionic Cell Lysis Kit, Mass Spec Grade has been specially designed for the efficient recovery of purified protein lysates from biological samples. The ProteaPrep Zwitterionic Cell Lysis Reagent (SP-813) is a proprietary formulation containing a mixture of salts and detergents that has been optimized for efficient solubilization, extraction, and recovery of most proteins during cell lysis.
The ProteaPrep Zwitterionic Cell Lysis Kit features the Progenta Zwitterionic Acid Labile Surfactant I (ZALS I), a powerful acid cleavable detergent that alleviates the problems commonly associated with SDS and other detergents in proteomics studies. After completing the cell lysis, the cell extract solution will not interfere with downstream sample preparation and analysis by techniques such as mass spectrometry, enzymatic digestions, 2D gel electrophoresis, and protein quantitation (e.g. Bradford and Lowry assays).
