Pressure BioSciences, AnaSpec

Pressure BioSciences this week launched ProteoSolveLRS, its first pressure cycling technology-dependent research-use only kit for extracting proteins from lipid-rich samples. Earlier this month, the company announced the development of the PCT-dependent method. In a statement, Pressure BioSciences said the method offers significant advantages over current extraction techniques, including the ability to use certain organic solvents instead of harsh detergents in the extraction process.

AnaSpec introduced its new Rabbit Anti-MOG (35-55) antibody this week. The polyclonal antibody was raised against a synthetic peptide from the N-terminus corresponding to amino acids 35-55 of mouse and rat MOG, the company said in a statement.
