Biotech Support Group Release: NuGel™ Products Perform Optimally Using New on-Bead Digestion for LC-MS


1/10/2013 9:51:11 AM

PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 9, 2013 - MONMOUTH JUNCTION, NJ- Biotech Support Group reports on a recent development for its line of NuGel™ and related products. With greater interest in the proteomics community for better workflows and performance for LC-MS analyses, affinity separations have often been coupled to direct proteolytic digestion of the bound protein content. This is commonly called “on-bead digestion” in the literature. Biotech Support Group has extended the benefits of on-bead digestion to include its low abundance enrichment products that deplete the high abundance proteins by selective voidance – AlbuVoid™ in the case of albumin from serum/plasma, and HemoVoid™ in the case of hemoglobin from red cell lysates and whole blood. For urine proteins, the UPCK™ Urine Protein Enrichment/Concentration Kit concentrates the proteins sufficiently for on-bead digestion. Furthermore, these same on-bead digestion protocols extend to its affinity sorbents such as KinaSorb™ - for kinases, PDEnRich™ for cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases, NuGel™ Glycoprotein Enrichment PBA Kit - With Phenyl Boronic Acid Matrix for glycoproteins, and the NuGel™ covalent chemistries for immobilizing affinity ligands.

“These developments support our efforts to supply ideal enrichment and affinity products for LC-MS proteomics analysis. Our NuGel™ products are different from other protein separations products which are mostly derived from carbohydrate architectures. By contrast, the NuGel™ products are derived from a unique polymer-coated porous silica, which is rigid with a low water content, ideal for concentration and proteolytic digestion. Because of its passivation, the non-specific protein binding is virtually eliminated” states Swapan Roy, Ph.D., President of Biotech Support Group.
