Protein extraction using the Precellys® Evolution from food samples

Sources: Genclis SAS, Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, France

Context

In this study, the objective is the identification of allergens recognized by the IgE antibodies from allergic patients. Genclis SAS used the Precellys® Evolution to homogenize food samples for protein extraction. The quality of proteins extracted with the Precellys® Evolution was evaluated by Coomassie Blue staining.

Results

Even in absence of an aqueous buffer during the homogenization step, good quality protein extracts were obtained using the Precellys® Evolution.

The ability of the Precellys® Evolution to homogenize highly hydrated samples (vegetables and fruits) without added aqueous buffer is a real advantage for obtaining more concentrated protein samples.
