MO BIO introduces a new kit for extraction of pure protein from soil samples
CARLSBAD, Calif., July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — MO BIO Laboratories, Inc., the leader in soil, plant, stool and other challenging microbial nucleic acid purification, recently launched the NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit, for extraction of pure protein from all soil types. It is the first commercially available kit designed for extraction of extracellular and intracellular microbial protein from a wide range of soil types without co-extraction of interfering compounds such as humic substances.
The NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit overcomes the challenges of efficiently extracting proteins from complex samples such as soil. The kit effectively reduces interference from contaminants which may render SDS PAGE gels — a cost effective pre-screen before mass spectrometry — unusable. The kit also produces higher yields and more accurate mass spectrometry results.
Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute’s Proteomics Core successfully used the NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit to extract protein from soil samples for protein identification by 1D mass spectrometry analysis. Khatereh Motamedchaboki, PhD, director of the proteomics facility at Sanford-Burnham intends to use the NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit at the proteomics shared resource core and become the first center of excellence in soil protein analysis using Mass Spectrometry.
Features of the NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit include:
- Cleaner protein by reducing humic substance interference
- Higher yields through efficient extraction of intracellular and extracellular microbial protein from only five grams of soil
- Accurate results in mass spectrometry, 1D and 2D polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and other proteomics applications
The NoviPure(TM) Soil Protein Extraction Kit is available now at www.mobio.com/novipure.
