- IP Myth 3: Capacity Is Crucial
- IP Myth 4: Dynabeads® Is Expensive
Fact: Almost all Background is Removed with Dynabeads® Magnetic BeadsSimplicity is the key.
It seems to be an established fact that background can’t be avoided. Or is this a myth that now ought to be busted?
Watch this video and learn how background can be absolutely avoided with Dynabeads® magnetic beads.
Fact: Pre-clearing is not Necessary with Dynabeads® Magnetic Beads
Is it really necessary to pre-clear your sample prior to immunoprecipitation?
Watch this video and learn how you can avoid background without any pre-clearing.
Fact: High Capacity is not Always a Good ThingWhen we say capacity is crucial, we are typically talking about the antigen-binding capacity. Because of the history of protein isolation and the move from large-scale protein purification to immunoprecipitation, people tend to believe that this capacity actually is crucial—when in fact capacity isn’t always a good thing.
The fact is that you want to balance the capacity, yield, specificity, and cost.
Watch this video to learn why.
Fact: You Can Save Money Using Dynabeads® Magnetic Beads
Some people think that Dynabeads® magnetic beads are expensive, while slurry is typically considered to be cheap. Yet the price per sample is comparable—or even lower—when you include the pre-clearing step.
When you calculate the cost of doing your immunoprecipitation, you typically look at the cost of the solid phase relative to the potential capacity of a fixed volume of that solid phase.
Watch this video to better understand how to calculate the actual cost of your immunoprecipitation experiments.
