New Products: Thermo Scientific GlycoLink Kits and More


Thermo Fisher Scientific this week introduced its new GlycoLink Immobilization and Immunoprecipitation kits for protein affinity purification and the study of protein interactions.

The kits enable coupling of glycosylated proteins to a beaded resin and allow for greater than 90 percent coupling in four hours or less, the company said.

AMSBIO this week launched its MagSi-proteomics beads for the purification, concentration, and desalting of peptides and protein digests.

The beads have been modified with C4, C8, and C18-alkyl groups optimized for reversed phase applications and offer higher throughput and lower cost compared to tip-based separations, the company said.
