* We have availabe trypsin, chymotrypsin or endoproteinase AspN for protein digestions; other enzymes may require an additional charge, which will be quoted in advance.
** We use ZipTips® and Centricon® centrifugal filter devices for sample desalting; other materials/media may require an additional charge, which will be quoted in advance.
