"We have tried the SUMOStar technology on one of the toughest proteins in our mammalian expression platform portfolio, which previously failed to express in various expression vectors in HEK293 cells. The SUMO fusion approach resulted in an astounding yield of 3 mg of the purified recombinant protein per Litre. Due to the conformation of the fusion protein (it was a tight dimer), we experienced difficulties when trying to remove the SUMO tag. We therefore contacted the Lifesensors' Technical Support. The feedback was remarkably speedy, expertly and very helpful: our problem was resolved. Excellent technology. Excellent product support."

"The VU-1 antibody from LifeSensors is the best anti-ubiquitin antibody that we have found after trying more than ten different anti-ubiquitin antibodies. "
