Oxford Expression Technologies this week introduced the flashBACULTRA, a baculovirus vector for increased yield and improved quality of expressed protein.
flashBACULTRA is the only baculovirus vector to incorporate the deletion of chitinase, cathepsin, p10, p74, and p26 genese from the virus genome, the company said in a statement. It is the latest addition to Oxford Expression’s flashBAC portfolio of products for the production of multiple recombinant viruses in one step.
AnaSpec this week launched its AnaTag APC, B-PE, and R-PE Labeling kits for antibody labeling.
The kits contain all the reagents needed for “optimized” labeling of antibodies, and the phycobiliproteins are modified by SMCC, resulting in the creation of SH-reactive moieties, “which can easily react with the thiol groups of target antibody,” the company said in a statement,“ the company said in a statement. Since no addition activation is required, the conjugation process is simple and easy.”
The kit also contains a purification column to label up to 1 mg of antibody and a detailed protocol.
Biotech Support Group this week introduced HemoVoid for the depletion of hemoglobin from red cell lysates.
HemoVoid selectively voids hemoglobin while binding the remaining protein content from erythrocytes, the company said in a statement. The surface matrix is not based on antibodies or combinatorial libraries,“providing an economical method that retains functional and tertiary structure in the eluate proteins,” it said.
