UCF.ME™ UltraNuclease GMP-grade



UltraNuclease GMP-grade from YEASEN is expressed and purified in Escherichia coli (E. coli) by genetically engineered and prepared under the GMP environments. It can reduce the viscosity of cell supernatant and cell lysate in scientific research, increase protein purification efficiency and enhance protein functional research. The product can also reduce host nucleic acid residues to pg-grade, improving the performance and safety of biological products of applications including virus purification, vaccine manufacturing, and protein/polysaccharide pharmaceutical manufacturing.

UltraNuclease from YEASEN is provided in the form of a sterilized reagent, eluted in buffer (20 mM Tris-HCl pH 8.0, 2 mM MgCl2, 20 mM NaCl, 50% glycerin), with the appearance of a colorless, transparent liquid. This product is produced by GMP process requirements and provided in a liquid form.
