Protein precipitation reagent

Trichloroacetic acid, is traditionally used to precipitate protein. Has been used to determine protein concentration by quantitative precipitation. It is also used as a decalcifier and fixative in microscopy in protein sequencing, detecting albumin and organic synthesis. A protocol for the precipitation of nucleic acids can be found in Molecular Cloning.

This Thermo Scientific brand product was originally part of the Alfa Aesar product portfolio. Some documentation and label information may refer to the legacy brand. The original Alfa Aesar product / item code or SKU reference has not changed as a part of the brand transition to Thermo Scientific.
