Advansta Introduces Afyon™ Sample Prep Kit for SDS-PAGE
New kit speeds routine preparation of protein samples for gel electrophoresis
Menlo Park, CA, December 7, 2010 — Advansta Inc announces the release of the new Afyon kit for the quick and easy preparation of protein samples for electrophoretic analysis. Afyon concentrates protein samples, and removes buffer components such as detergents and chaotropic salts that can interfere with electrophoresis. The Afyon protocol is very fast. In less than ten minutes samples are ready for electrophoresis, representing a substantial time savings compared to dialysis or protein precipitation procedures. The protocol is easily scaled up, allowing multiple samples to be processed in parallel. Afyon is compatible with SDS-PAGE analysis and subsequent Western blotting, making it an important part of Advansta’s complete line of protein analysis tools and reagents. Advansta specializes in protein immunodetection, with a complete line of horseradish peroxidase substrates for chemiluminescent detection, as well as a kit and reagents for multicolor fluorescent detection.
Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Menlo Park, California, Advansta Inc is an evolving international company providing a wide range of products and reagents to simplify, accelerate and improve life sciences research.
