There are various factors that can affect the result of a protein purification experiment, e.g. lysis method and conditions, buffer composition, temperature, protein solubility.

Here you can find some information about the different steps in the course of a protein purification. If you have any further questions or comments, please contact the members of our group.

You can find more detailed information about protein purification techniques in the Handbook series published by GE Lifesciences (formerly known as Amersham Biosciences):
