Manufacturer: BioVision Inc K21650
Lipid Extraction Kit (Chloroform Free): Lipids are a group of naturally occurring molecules that include monoglycerides, diglycerides, trigylcerides, fats, sterols and others. Lipids define and preserve cellular membrane integrity and play an important role in cellular processes such as membrane trafficking, signal transduction and energy storage. Dysregulation of lipid metabolism is linked to many diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. BioVision's Lipid Extraction Kit provides a chloroform free protocol of lipid isolation by organic extraction in a phase-free manner. The recovered organic phase can be dried and resuspended for further downstream lipid analysis. This protocol not only overcomes the difficulty of lower phase extraction and the dangers of using chloroform, but also provides for a very efficient and clean lipid extraction. Each kit provides sufficient reagents to isolate up to 50 lipid preparations based on a 25 ¿l sample size.
