Get complete lysis of blood cells with Boston BioProducts

Obtaining a blood sample is delicate. And retrieving information from its red or white blood cells requires careful precision. For this reason, using a blood lysis buffer that only attains partial lysis just doesn't cut it! We offer a range of lysis buffers and custom solutions to help you obtain complete lysis of red or white blood cells from various organisms.

With our expertise and products, we can custom formulate any lysis buffer to ensure you get intact white blood cells upon lysing red blood cells.

How we simplify the process

You need functional components to deem the blood cell lysis successful and complete. Since the blood sample you have to work with to obtain information is valuable to you, it matters to us to help you achieve your goals quickly and efficiently. We provide high-quality pre-made blood cell lysis buffers and more.

Need a solution to prevent proteolytic degradation and dephosphorylation of the extracted protein? Our scientists create and provide expert cocktail inhibitors so you can use those lysates for conducting enzymatic assays.

Frequently Asked Questions

Blood cell lysis is the breaking or disruption of blood cells (red blood cells called erythrocytes and white blood cells called leukocytes). Scientists typically employ mechanical or non-mechanical methods to lyse cells to extract proteins for downstream experiments.

A blood lysis buffer disrupts the blood cell's membrane by altering pH. A range of buffers can lyse red or white blood cells. If detergents are added to buffers, the release of soluble proteins is accelerated, and a purification step must be added to the cell lysis protocol.
