General remarks on Isolation Conditions
In general,  the required Collagenase NB concentration depends on tissue type and origin as well as isolation procedure. Suggested concentrations should be considered as starting points and progress of the digestion process should be monitored visually in order to determine the optimal conditions.
We recommend dosing Collagenase NB by activity (PZ units), not by weight. SERVA guarantees a high lot-to-lot consistency; however, small variations may occur. Therefore dosing in activity ensures consistent results for your cell isolation process.

New Application Note:
ICPL™ - Coupled Immunoprecipitation

ImmunoPrecipitation (IP) is widely used as a method to selectively isolate protein complexes from primary tissues. However, due to lack of specificity and selectivity of most antibodies and unspecific binding of the carrier beads, the method can produce false positives. The ICPL approach, employing stable isotope labelling and mass spectrometry, can discriminate true positive from false positive IP complexes.
