What are application-specific formulations?

Application-specific formulations are pre-blended mixtures of purified collagenase and protease in optimal ratios for isolation of cells from a particular tissue and/or species. Currently, our CIzyme™ Collagenase AS and CIzyme™ Collagenase RI are our only two application-specific formulations.

What is the best way to inactivate the enzymes when a digestion is complete?

What is the best way to inactivate the enzymes when a digestion is complete?

There are two components to inactivation of the digestive enzymes commonly used for tissue dissociation.  To inactivate protease activity, a serum-containing media or buffer is most effective.  Buffers or media containing human serum albumin (HSA) are ineffective in suppressing protease activity, even at very high concentrations of protein (>10%). However, serum-containing buffers do not inhibitRead more about What is the best way to inactivate the enzymes when a digestion is complete?[…]
