Denator this week launched its Stabilizor Peptide Extraction Kit for the heat-stabilization, homogenization, and extraction of endogenous peptides from tissue samples prior to LC-MS analysis.

The Stabilizor kit is designed to stop tissue degradation at the moment of sampling, preventing the generation of peptide fragments that can contribute to background in studies of endogenous peptides, the company said.

Origene this week made available four new monoclonal antibodies against fluorescent protein tags – Anti-turbo GFP, Anti-enhanced GFP, Anti-turbo YFP, and Anti-turbo RFP.

The antibodies are validated via immunoassays and are optimized for the detection of recombinant fusion proteins, the company said. It is offering $100 anti-tGFP and anti-DDK antibodies with the purchase of a TrueORF clone through May 31.
