When biological samples are stored or incubated in standard vessels, over 90 % of the sample can be lost within 24 hours as a result of binding to the plastic surface. Eppendorf LoBind Tubes maximize sample recovery by significantly reducing sample binding to the surface. A special, two-component polymer mix creates a hydrophilic surface that ensures optimized recovery rates of valuable samples. Protein LoBind Tubes have been specially designed for use in protein research or with sensitive proteomic test methods, and frequently provide significantly improved analysis results.
Eppendorf Protein LoBind products
These products are available in tube, microplate and deepwell plate formats to meet the different application needs for various sample volumes and throughput.
Significantly higher recovery rate of proteins
from Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes compared to other low binding tubes after incubation for 96 h. (See Application Note 180 for more details).
The use of Eppendorf Protein LoBind Tubes yield a significantly higher signal during MALDI–TOF analysis of the peptide angiotensin I when compared to the use of standard tubes. At 1 pmol, analysis becomes impossible with standard microtest tubes. The arrows identify the signals in each experiment. (Source: Dr. S.
