Protein Purity and Homogeneity Characterization Service Online Inquiry

Protein purity and homogeneity are key for protein crystallization and rigorous structural and functional studies. Impure samples will lead to inaccurate and imprecise results across experiments. In addition, Protein purity and homogeneity are two very important characteristics for further protein studies and biopharmaceutical applications. Purity of protein sample limits the application of protein products. Common contaminants of protein product include culturing medium and reagents from extraction and purification steps. In addition to impurity, protein heterogeneity may result from differential intra-cellular processing and the addition of co- and post-translational modifications. It is important to analyze the purity and homogeneity of your protein prior to using it for further processes.

Sample Requirements

We work with antibodies, antigens, enzymes, growth factors, DNA-binding proteins, blood proteins, membrane proteins, etc. We accept a range of samples, including:

  • Native proteins from natural sources
  • Fusion and tagged proteins from recombinant sources
  • Antibodies of different isotypes
  • Membrane proteins

Please submit at least 100 ug of purified protein at ≥1 mg/mL.

Advantages of Protein Purity and Homogeneity Characterization

  • Advanced technical platforms. We are equipped with multiple technical platforms that allow to determine the protein purity and homogeneity accurately.
  • Accuracy and reproducibility. We provide accurate and detailed results about the purity and homogeneity of your sample, which save you from wasting time on bad samples.
  • A wide range of applications. Purified and homogenous proteins can be used in research and medical applications, such as the development and quality control of therapeutic proteins.

Creative Proteomics provides a wide spectrum of methods to characterize your samples cost-effectively, and delivers reliable and detailed data reports. As every project has different requirements, please contact our specialists to discuss your specific needs.
