The patented RapiGest SF Surfactant is a reagent used to enhance enzymatic digestion of proteins, both in-gel and in-solution. RapiGest SF helps solubilize proteins, making them more susceptible to enzymatic cleavage without inhibiting enzyme activity.
Unlike other commonly used denaturants, such as SDS or urea, RapiGest SF does not modify peptides or suppress protease activity. It is compatible with enzymes such as Trypsin, Lys-C, Asp-N, Glu-C, PNGaseF, and other enzymes.
