Thermo Scientific Control Agarose Resin is underivatized beaded agarose support for pre-clearing protein immunoprecipitation samples to reduce background signal and nonspecific binding in IP and Co-IP experiments.
The unmodified and non-activated Control Agarose Resin is the same support that is included in our immunoprecipitation (IP) kits and co-immunoprecipitation (co-IP) kits. The resin is effective for depleting proteins and other sample components that bind to agarose nonspecifically, which reduces background signal in IP reactions. When used as a negative control, these beads enable specific and nonspecific binding interactions to be distinguished.
- Matched control resin – the crosslinked 4% beaded agarose (CL4B) is the same base support used in our various IP and co-IP kits
- Ideal package size – unlike other suppliers who offer only 1 liter bottles of similar agarose resin, our 10 ml package size is more appropriate for experimental needs
- Convenient format – the resin is supplied as a 50% slurry in 20% ethanol (pipetting 1mL of slurry delivers 0.5mL of settled resin); just wash in buffer and the beads are ready to use
