Ceres Nanosciences this week announced the launch of Nanotrap ESP Particles for protein enrichment in complex biological samples.

According to the company, Nanotrap ESP Particles improve complex sample processing, leading to the detection of low-abundance proteins that otherwise may not be observed. It improves the sensitivity of any gel electrophoresis protein detection method such as silver staining, Coomassie Blue, Western blotting, and mass spec analysis, the company added.

Ceres, based in Manassas, Va., was launched in July 2008 by Emanuel Petricoin and Lance Liotta.


Canadian biotech Norgen Biotek this week launched isolation kits for proteins, DNA, RNA, microRNA, exfoliated cells, and microorganisms.

The kits provide fast, robust, reliable, and simple procedures for isolating high-quality molecules for molecular biology applications, the company said in a statement.
