2-Iminothiolane hydrochloride (Traut's Reagent) is used to convert primary amine (-NH2) groups to sulfhydryl groups (-SH) at pH 7 to 10. Traut's reagent (2-IT) is a water soluble molecule that is easy to use and creates a wide range of flexibility to the researcher.
2-Mercaptoethanol (2-ME) is a reducing agent used in synthetic and biological applications. This reducing agent is offered in multiple sizes to maximize its efficiency and shelf life. CovaChem's 2-Mercaptoethanol (11301-10 x 1 g) is designed for use in biological assays. These 1 gram hermetically sealed ampules provide maximum protection of the active thiol group and inconsistent activity from use to use or bottle to bottle.
CHCA MALDI Matrix is a reagent used to create ions for MALDI-MS and MALDI TOF TOF analysis of protein and peptide molecules below 4,000 Daltons. TOF TOF mass spectrometry is one of the more common forms of MALDI-MS/MS, although several other types of mass spectrometers can also be coupled to MALDI instrumentation.
