Toolkit description

Electron microscopic analysis of negatively stained proteins is a highly evident method to demonstrate the effects of ligands on actin. The Actin-Toolkit Electron Microscopy is ready-to use for the preparation of electron microscopic specimen, making this method accessible for researchers who would like to get introduced to EM works on actin imaging.

This Toolkit is designed for users that either took a short introduction at an EM facility or to pass kit and ligands for inspection to an EM service. The Actin-Toolkit Electron Microscopy is easy-to-use. It contains 4x0.5mg rabbit skeletal (Cat. # 8070-01) or bovine cardiac muscle actin (Cat. # 8700-01), buffers for washing the specimen that maintain either the G- or F-actin state, and SpreadingSolution in addition. 

A handbook with a detailed description of the experimental setup guides the user for safe, error-free handling. We guarantee excellent performance of kit components when stored at -70°C upon arrival for 6 months.

Purity

>99% by scanning densitometry.
