NEW! We’re Launching IgMBRAZOR™!

IgMBRAZOR is a unique IgM-specific protease that digests human IgM at one specific site below the CH2 domain in the heavy chain, generating homogeneous F(ab’)2 and Fc fragments. We’re excited to launch this unique tool today that enables middle-level analysis of the complex and high molecular weight human IgM!
IgMBRAZOR facilitates IgM characterization during, for example, the development of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics. The digestion is complete within 30 minutes, and due to the specificity of the enzyme, there is no risk of overdigestion if the incubation time is prolonged.
