PISCATAWAY, N.J., Jan. 2, 2007 – GenScript, supplier of gene, peptide, protein, and antibody services to customers worldwide, announces a new immunodetection product, the One-Step IP-Western Kit. This kit eliminates all contamination from heavy chains, light chains, and proteins A and G. In addition, it also has a shorter run time than other western blots, about one hour.
Protein A and G resins are a common part of many immunodetection procedures, but they can shed proteins A and G. These proteins, along with heavy chains and light chains from primary and secondary antibodies, can leave blots on the membrane that may obscure relevant results. The One-Step IP-Western Kit is the first product on the market that can sidestep this problem, rendering western analysis practical for a large number of molecules that would otherwise have to be evaluated by different means.
The One-Step IP-Western Kit maintains both high sensitivity and low background. Quantities of IP antibody as high as 2 μg remain undetected, while revealing even nanograms of antigen.
GenScript IP-western kits are available for use with rabbit, mouse, and goat primary antibodies. A kit containing ten assays retails for $375. High-resolution photos of One-Step IP-Western results are available at www.genscript.com/ip_western_tech.html. The company offers similar kits for regular western analysis.
GenScript Corporation provides high-quality gene synthesis, custom peptides, custom proteins, custom antibodies, lab supplies, kits, and reagents to life science researchers in industrial and academic settings throughout the world. GenScript Corporation is headquartered in Piscataway, New Jersey.
