Clean samples = Less MS downtime
Achieving optimal protein characterization means working with the purest samples possible. Solvent precipitation is the best way to remove salts, lipids, and detergents from your sample, but it’s hard to perform consistently across multiple samples and multiple users. The ProTrap XG makes precipitation fast and easily reproducible.
End precipitation guess work & achieve better results
With the ProTrap XG, users no longer have to sacrifice sample loss for purity or vice versa. High recovery can now be achieved without having to rely on technique and expertise. The consistency of samples prepared in the ProTrap XG means better MS data outputs every single time.
Digestion, clean-up & fractionation – all in one device
Operating in bench-top centrifuge, the ProTrap XG offers users versatility, efficiency, and scalability in sample preparation.
ProTrap XG vs. Other Methods
Many researchers find conventional methods of precipitation challenging, requiring tedious transfer and pipetting often leading to variable consistency and yield. Some methods show a loss of 50% or more of the sample, making analysis even more difficult. This tool eliminates tedious pipetting steps, offering consistency, method transferability, and versatility in the sample prep process.
