Biotech Support Group Release: Albumin Depletion for Secretome Sample Preparation Via AlbuVoid for Cellular Modeling Systems
Published: Nov 12, 2012
The patient cites AlbuVoid™ from Biotech Support Group
“In one embodiment, the cells can be cultured in serum containing medium: The volume of the medium can be reduced using 3k MWCO Vivaspin columns (GE Healthcare Life Sciences), then can be reconstituted withlxPBS (Invitrogen). Serum albumin can be depleted from all samples using AlbuVoid column (Biotech Support Group, LLC) following the manufacturer's instructions with the modifications of buffer-exchange to optimize for condition medium application.”
Characteristics of AlbuVoid™
Albumin voids in flow-through >95%, with <30 minute bind/wash/elute protocol
Low abundance enrichment equivalent or better than hexa-peptides or antibodies
Disposable, cost-effective, no column regeneration or cross-contamination
Mild elution maintains tertiary structure and simple transfer to secondary analysis
The eluted fractions retain their enzymatic and biological activity
Removes albumin from many species including human, mouse, sheep, bovine, goat, rat, calf, cell culture. The eluted fraction is compatible with LC-MS, activity based protein profiling and proteomic studies.
