Lots of protein from a small sample!

A little protein hasn’t always gone a long way. Even in simply extracting small samples you can often be forced to dilute the samples, effectively decreasing your experimental sensitivity. With this in mind, Invent Biotechnolgies team of scientists developed the Minute™ Kits – protein extraction kits that can be used with as little as 20µl of buffer, and can take as little as 1 or 2 minutes to go from cells or ground tissue to extracted protein.


When working with small samples, dilution can be your worst enemy. We know because we’ve been there. We have been frustrated by low signals caused as a result of protocols which require large liquid volumes. Most popular protein extraction reagents require a minimum volume of 50µL or more, then tell you to increase the buffer volume if protein concentration is low (evidence of a weak buffer). The buffers we’ve developed for our Minute™ Kits are strong buffers that allow a lower sample volume and a higher final protein concentration with your small samples. Even with these stronger buffers, you can still extract native proteins!


2.5x less sample size = 2.5x more concentrated sample

Invent Biotechnologies Minute™ Kits can lyse and extract proteins from cell concentrations up to 10 million cells / ml. Most kits yield insufficient protein concentrations for many experiments if starting with less than one million cells, but the higher cell concentrations usable with Minute™ Kits makes it easily possible to get great SDS-PAGE, Western Blot, and other results from as little as 1/2 million cells! (Your results may vary based on the abundance of your protein, but you'll always get higher concentrations with Minute™ Kit protocols)
