Mo Bio's NoviPure Microbial Protein Kit

Mo Bio Laboratories has launched the NoviPure Microbial Protein kit, for the isolation of total cellular proteins from microbial cultures in a quick and user-friendly spin filter format. The kit features an optimized bead beating method which enables efficient lysis and solubilization of total proteins from a large diversity of microbial species including fungi, gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. The silica spin filters achieve reversible immobilization of proteins — a patent-pending technical advance in protein extraction — greatly simplifies the isolation process by removing traditional cumbersome and bias-inducing precipitation steps.
