HIS-Select® Technology

A Highly Selective Chemistry for HIS-tagged Protein Purification

Our HIS-Select products have the ability to purify histidine-tagged proteins quickly and with high selectivity. This is due to HIS-Select's patented, non-charged, hydrophilic nickel chelate linkage. This non-charged linkage greatly diminishes non-specific binding. Most other systems for histidine-tagged protein purification utilize a charged chelate linkage. The tetradentate chelator used in the HIS-Select products results in greatly reduced nickel leaching and in high specificity for purification or affinity capture of your histidine-tagged protein. In addition, HIS-Select eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming secondary purification of your protein, allowing for One-step-purification.
