Product Description

Polyethylene Glycol

Application Notes

PEG has been used in the precipitation of proteins, as a fusing agent in enhancing the effect of macrophages on hybridoma, in the separation and purification of biomolecules, and in induction of cell hybridization. PEG 8000, can be used to precipitate DNA. PEG has also been used to recover pathogenic viruses and human rotaviruses from water, oyster and sediment samples. PEG has demonstrated to have anticell proliferation and antitumor effects via induction of apoptosis.
