sicastar® particles are offered with the nickel(II)-nitrilotriacetic acid (Ni-NTA) complex in the size range of 300 nm to 20 µm for the binding of histidine labeled proteins. Recombinant  proteins containing a 6xhistidine-tag can be purified by Ni-NTA (nickel-nitrilotriacetic acid) chromatography which is based on the interaction between a transition Ni2+ ion immobilized on a matrix and the histidine side chains. Following washing of the matrix 6xhistidine-tag fusion proteins can be eluted by adding free imidazole or EDTA or by reducing the pH.
The particles are supplied in water without any surfactants.
