Recombinant Protein Expression and Purification

Platform: bacterial mammalian or insect cell lines

Project segmentation to evaluate each milestone reached

Full Confidentiality Assured

Our Standard Protein Expression & Purification Stages:


Time Scale


I: Gene synthesis & preparation of target vector 3 Weeks
  • Synthesis of protein of interest and cloning into appropriate vector
  • Choice of purification tag (His-tag/GST-tag) and cleavage site (SUMO,TEV/3C etc.)
  • Transformation of vector into appropriate host cell type
IIa: Small scale expression 2-3 Weeks
  • Small scale (50ml) expression
  • Optimisation of growth/expression parameters followed by analysis of protein expression by SDS-PAGE, WB etc.
IIb: Medium scale expression 2-3 Weeks
  • 1 step affinity purification (His-tag/GST-tag) and tag removal (if required)
  • Analysis of protein purity by SDS-PAGE and WB
III: Large scale expression 3-6 Weeks
  • 1L scale expression and purification
  • Typical yield of 1-5mg of purified protein
  • Further scale will be required to meet your demand
