General description

PNGase Fast enables complete and rapid deglycosylation of antibodies and immunoglobulin fusion proteins, as well as other glycoproteins, to be prepared for downstream chromatography or mass spectrometry analysis. PNGase Fast creates an optimized workflow, reducing processing time without compromising sensitivity or reproducibility.

PNGase Fast is proteomic grade PNGase F combined with a buffer able to yield results similar to a conventional 20-hour protocol with overnight digest while reducing workflow time to about 1 hour with a 15 minute digest. Substrate reduction prior to PNGase Fast treatment is optional, but required for complete deglycosylation of some samples. PNGase Fast buffer and enzyme can be used instead of conventional filter-assisted workflows to allow for comparable results with significant time savings.
