CelLytic MT Cell Lysis Reagent

For mammalian tissues

Pricing and availability is not currently available.

Quality Level


CelLytic MT Cell Lysis Reagent has been used in the homogenization of hippocampi tissues, quadriceps muscles from mice, primary human trophoblasts (PHT), soleus muscles from mice and organs of Corti (OCs).

Features and Benefits

  • Gentle: Non-denaturing and does not interfere with downstream applications
  • Convenient: Provided ready to use

Other Notes

CelLytic MT is an efficient reagent for the extraction of proteins. The lysis buffer consists of a dialyzable mild detergent, bicine, and 150 mM NaCl, resulting in minimal interference with protein interactions and biological activity. CelLytic MT is also used for extraction of cell-line proteins. A volume of 20 mL of CelLytic MT is sufficient for 1 gram of tissue.


It has been tested, but not limited to the following tissues: rat brain, kidney, muscle, heart, liver, spleen and mouse brain, kidney and muscle.
