The Uricon® concentrator provides a reliable method for the rapid concentration of proteins from clinical samples such as serum and urine. It is of particular interest to hospital laboratories carrying out routine enrichment of body fluids prior to electrophoresis. The key feature of URICON is its maximum concentration factor of 300x which enables concentration of 5ml of urine sample up to 50µl in as low as 40 min by using pressure valve.
Uricon protein Concentrator can be used for the following applications:
- Concentration of clinical samples, (e.g.: serum, cerebrospinal fluid, urine) prior to electrophoresis/immune-fixation
- Routine enrichment of urine specimens prior to immune-fixation for the detection of Bence- jones proteins
- Concentration of research samples
- Desalting by repetitive dilution and concentration
