INVITROGEN : CBQCA Protein Quantitation Kit High-sensitivity protein quantitation (including lipoproteins and small peptides) even
in the presence of lipids, detergents, reducing agents or membranes .The CBQCA reagent becomes fluorescent upon reaction with amine groups
on proteins (amine of lysine sidechains), so amines (e.g., Tris or glycine) and ammonium ions should be avoided.. Detects as little as 100 ng of
INVITROGEN : Nano Orange Range between 10 ng/mL and 10 µg/mL. The protein sample is added to the diluted NanoOrange reagent,
mixture, heated at 95°C for ten minutes and fluorescence can be measured as soon as the mixture has cooled to room temperature. Tolerant to
reducing agents and nucleic acids, not to detergents. Although unusually high concentrations of lipids in the sample can interfere with the assay, this
interference can be eliminated by acetone precipitation of the protein, followed by delipidation with diethyl ether (pdf)
INVITROGEN : Quant-iTTM Protein Assay Kit. Range between 0.25-5 µg of protein. The assay is performed at room temperature, and the
signal is stable for 3 hours. Common contaminants, including salts, solvents, 2-mercaptoethanol, amino acids and DNA, are well tolerated in this assay.
It is not compatible with detergents (pdf) (pdf-II)

THERMO: Bicinchoninic Acid KIT (BCA) PIERCE Detergent-compatible formulation based on bicinchoninic acid (BCA) for the colorimetric detection
and quantitation of total protein. Working range: 20–2,000 μg/ml. Color formation depends of: the macromolecular structure of protein, the number
of peptide bonds and the presence of four particular amino acids (cysteine, cystine, tryptophan and tyrosine).
Certain substances are known to interfere with the BCA Assay including those with reducing potential, chelating agents, lipids and strong acids or
bases. Interfering substances may be eliminated by dialysis or gel filtration, or diluting the sample until the substance no longer interferes, or
precipitating the proteins in the sample with acetone or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) (pdf)

BIORAD ProteoMiner™ Protein Enrichment Technology is based on treatment of complex protein samples with a large, highly diverse library
of hexapeptides bound to chromatographic supports. In theory, each unique hexapeptide binds to a unique protein sequence. Because the
bead capacity limits binding capacity, high-abundance proteins quickly saturate their ligands and excess protein is washed out during the
procedure. In contrast, low-abundance proteins are concentrated on their specific ligands, thereby decreasing the dynamic range of proteins
in the sample. ProteoMiner Protein Enrichment Kit utilizes single elution reagent. ProteoMiner Sequential Elution Kit utilizes multiple elution
reagents sequentially elute proteins based on different properties. (pdf-I) (pdf-II)

and sensitivity for phosphoproteins. It exhibits excellent affinity for phosphomonoesters of tyrosine, serine and threonine. Phos-tag™ can be linked
to a variety of fluorophores, allowing a range of choices in spectral properties and detection hardware. Sensitivity to ˜ 1 ng phosphoprotein.
THERMO: Gel Code Blue Stain Reagent (pdf)
Utilizes the colloidal properties of coomassie G-250 dye for protein staining on polyacrylamide gels. Stains only protein and allows bands to be
viewed directly on the gel during the staining process. After staining, a water equilibration step (Water Wash Enhancement™) further enhances
staining sensitivity and yields a clear background.
THERMO: Gel Code Color Silver Stain Kit (pdf)
An improved formulation of the Silver Stain procedure. Has been successfully used to stain proteins, DNA, RNA, lipids and polysaccharides.
Along with the quantitation of protein it also characterizes protein via color. This color characterization distinguishes overlapping proteins, allows
for increased pattern recognition and visualization, and identifies minor contaminants in samples.

THERMO: Imperial™ Protein Stain is a coomassie R-250 dye-based reagent for protein staining in polyacrylamide gels. This reagent stains only
protein and allows bands to be viewed directly in the gel during the staining process (≤ 3 ng). The easy protocol is flexible to meet demanding
time and sensitivity requirements and uses a simple water wash to yield a clear background. (pdf)

THERMO: Krypton™ Glycoprotein Staining Kit enables fast and sensitive fluorescent staining for the detection of glycoproteins. The stain is sensitive
down to 15 ng of glycoprotein per band, depending upon the nature and degree of glycosylation on the proteins. (pdf)
THERMO: Krypton™ Infrared Protein Stain enables sensitive fluorescent visualization of proteins separated by 1-D or 2-D SDS-PAGE.
Sensitivity 0.25 ng using the standard protocol or down to 1 ng using the rapid 60 minute protocol. The stain has an excellent dynamic range and
is compatible with subsequent analysis by mass spectrometry. (pdf)

Alliance Protein Laboratories: Sedimentation equilibrium is an analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) method for measuring protein molecular masses in
solution and for studying protein-protein interactions. It is particularly valuable for:
1. establishing whether the native state of a protein is a monomer, dimer, trimer, etc.
2. measuring the equilibrium constant (Kd) for association of proteins which reversibly self-associate to form oligomers
3. measuring the stoichiometry of complexes between two or more different proteins or between a protein and a non-protein ligand
4. measuring the equilibrium constants for reversible protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions

Alliance Protein Laboratories: Sedimentation velocity is an analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) method that measures the rate at which molecules move
in response to centrifugal force generated in a centrifuge. This sedimentation rate provides information about both the molecular mass and the shape
of molecules. In some cases this technique can also measure diffusion coefficients and molecular mass. Sedimentation velocity is particularly valuable for:
1. verifying whether a sample is entirely homogeneous in mass and conformation
2. detecting aggregates in protein samples and quantifying the amount of aggregate
3.comparing the conformations for samples
4. establishing whether the native state of a protein or peptide is a monomer, dimer, trimer, etc.
5. determining the overall shape of non-glycosylated protein and peptide molecules in solution
6. measuring the distribution of sizes in samples which contain a very broad range of sizes
7. detecting changes in protein conformation, for example partial unfolding or transitions to "molten globule" states
8. studying the formation and stoichiometry of tight complexes between proteins

Alliance Protein Laboratories: Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy measures differences in the absorption of left-handed polarized light versus right-handed
polarized light which arise due to structural asymmetry. The absence of regular structure results in zero CD intensity, while an ordered structure results in a
spectrum which can contain both positive and negative signals. (Website A.P.L.) (file)

WYATT Solutions Essential techniques for characterizing macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution, to determine molar mass, size, charge,
SEC-MALS Conventional Size-Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) relies on reference standards that do not accurately represent your
molecules. SEC + Multi-Angle Static Light Scattering (SEC-MALS) measures molar mass directly, independent of elution time, so you can
have confidence in the values you report.
Molar Mass Multi -Angle static Light Scattering (MALS) measures molar mass directly, in solution. Combined with a fractionation technique
like SEC or FFF, MALS determines absolute molar mass distributions - independent of elution time
DLS Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) is popular wherever the size and size distributions of macromolecules and nanoparticles need to
be measured quickly and easily / high-throughput
Nanoparticle Size The size of macromolecules or nanoparticles is measured via two light scattering methods: Multi-Angle static Light
Scattering (MALS) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).
TREOS The Multi-Angle Light Scattering Detector for Absolute Macromolecular Analysis. The miniDAWN TREOS Multi-Angle static
Light Scattering (MALS) detector performs absolute characterization of the molar mass and size of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution
