Thermo Scientific™ Pierce™ Mammalian β-Galactosidase Assay Kit
Lyse cultured mammalian cells and measure beta-galactosidase activity using compatible M-PER Cell Lysis Reagent and colorimetric b-Gal Assay Reagent.
Manufacturer: Thermo Scientific™ 75705
Perform a simple colorimetric method for lysing cultured mammalian cells and measuring beta-Gal activity using Thermo Scientific™ Mammalian β-Galactosidase Assay Kit.The Assay Reagent and Kit comprise a simple and versatile assay system for measuring β-galactosidase activity. Mammalian cells grown on a plate may be lysed and tested for β-galactosidase activity by adding a single, all-in-one lysis-and-assay solution. Alternatively, the included Thermo Scientific M-PER™ Mammalian Protein Extraction Reagent may be used to prepare lysate from washed adherent or pelleted cells, and then a portion of the lysate used to quantitate the β-Gal activity. With M-PER Reagent, there is no need to scrape cells or to perform freeze-thaw cycles. The remaining lysates prepared with M-PER Reagent may be used for applications such as reporter assays (luciferase, β-galactosidase and chloramphenical acetyltransferase), protein kinase assays (PKA, PKC, and Tyrosine Kinase), immunoassays (Western blot, ELISA, RIA) and protein purification.
