Protein Analysis

Protein Analysis Kits

Protein Analysis Kits

Understanding and manipulating the structure and function of proteins is a major part of modern biotechnology. The Biotechnology Explorer™ program covers the main areas of protein analysis, including protein extraction, quantitation, separation, and analysis. Students get hands-on experience with techniques such as polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, western blotting, and ELISA with the protein analysis kits.
