Leinco Technologies offers a wide range of normal and diseased cell lysates, as controls and sources of proteins and nucleic acids for use in various applications such as western blotting, ELISA, immunoprecipitation and more. Host sources include human tissue, mouse tissue, rat tissue, human cell line and mouse cell line. In order to manufacture cell lysates for research, cell membranes must be broken down completely to release the contents into a suitable biological buffer. A mild nonionic detergent can be used alone to lyse cell lines but tissue often requires detergent and mechanical disruption such as grinding or homogenization. Leinco Technologies offers a vast assortment of cell lysates from a variety of host species including human, bovine, guinea pig and cynomolgus monkey.
