Agilent Technologies has introduced new spin cartridges that remove high-abundance proteins from blood serum. The cartridges allow for the depletion of high-abundance proteins using a standard benchtop centrifuge, rather than requiring the more expensive high-performance liquid chromatography instrumentation.
The reusable spin cartridges are based on the same technology as Agilent’s multiple affinity removal LC columns and provide similar performance, the company said.
Kinexus Bioinformatics recently launched its sixth Kinetworks Phospho-Site Screening Service designed to simultaneously detect the presence and relative quantities of 34 protein phosphorylation sites in humans and animal model systems, the Vancouver, Canada-based company announced this week.
Kinexus currently tracks more than 180 protein kinases, 150 phospho-sites in kinase targets and 120 other signaling proteins that regulate cell proliferation, stress responses and apoptosis, according to the company.
