The Rotofor® and Mini Rotofor Cells use liquid-phase IEF to separate proteins into 20 fractions in free solution.
As an initial purification step, these cells concentrate proteins and eliminate proteins outside of a pI range of interest. As a final purification step, they eliminate protein contaminants that may be difficult to remove by other means.
Because it can process up to gram quantities of protein and effectively concentrates proteins into discrete zones based on pI, the Rotofor is a proven and effective method for the enrichment of low-abundance proteins. In a single run, the Rotofor cell concentrates samples up to 20-fold; selected fractions may also be pooled and refractionated on either the mini Rotofor or MicroRotofor cell to yield even greater purification. In 2-D electrophoresis applications, protein fractionation by pI improves downstream sample loading and separation on narrow- and micro-range IPG strips by eliminating proteins outside the pH region of interest.
The Rotofor (60 ml focusing chamber) and mini Rotofor (18 ml focusing chamber) cells are actually different configurations of the same system and are designed to accommodate different sample loads.
Features of Rotofor and Mini Rotofor Cells include
Interchangeable cylindrical focusing chambers - enable refractionation of selected fractions for even greater purification
Maintenance of biological activity
Customizable pH gradients - wide or narrow linear pH gradients can be generated using Bio-Lyte ampholytes
Focusing and enrichment of a protein of interest into 1 or 2 fractions in a single step
