Thermo Fisher Scientific MSIA Steptavidin EVO Microcolumns

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the MSIA Streptavidin EVO microcolumns. The purification solution is designed to enable scientists to analyze large biomolecules. Housed in a pipette tip, the proprietary monolithic columns are densely coated with streptavidin for analytical affinity purification of any biotinylated affinity ligands, even at low concentration. Since the technology is incorporated into the pipette, users can analyze sample volumes as low as 10 μL, the company said.
