Agilent Technologies has launched the Assaymap Bravo platform and protein purification cartridges - a complete solution for high-throughput protein sample preparation and purification.
The Bravo for Protein Purification micro-chromatography technology enables the quick, precise and highly parallel microscale purification of target antibodies.
With this combined solution, customers can generate high-purity samples that can be used for direct titre assays or downstream characterisation and processing applications.
Nitin Sood, general manager of Agilent's Automation Solutions Division, said: 'This launch offers a complete solution for a variety of sample prep applications and saves valuable time developing and validating assays, allowing customers to focus on generating business-critical data to advance their biologics pipeline.
'The Assaymap Bravo and cartridges for protein purification are ideal for those in biologics discovery and development who need the streamlined, precise purification of their protein of interest,' added Sood.
The Bravo for Protein Purification uses disposable, 5-microliter packed-bed Assaymap cartridges in a 96-channel microplate format, which reduces the amount of starting sample used.
Target protein can be purified from a variety of common sources, including cell culture supernatants, cell culture lysates, hybridoma cultures and protein expression systems.
The Assaymap Bravo for Protein Purification is a fully supported system, with hardware and software as well as the cartridges used in the equipment available directly from Agilent.
The Bravo for Protein Purification will be available to order in February.
