HemoVoid™ - Blood Card Reagent
Hemoglobin Depletion Plus Protein Enrichment From Blood Card
Hemoglobin is a common contaminant from whole blood. The HemoVoid™ Blood Card protocol was
designed to substantially reduce the presence of hemoglobin and its associated interference with many
serum protein analytes. HemoVoid™ Blood Card is a silica based polyelectrolyte matrix, removes
hemoglobin from dried whole blood card samples. The HemoVoid™ protocol uses mild buffers; the protocol
conditions areso gentle that native enzyme activity is retained in elution fractions.
• Hemoglobin voids in flow-through >98%, with <30 minute bind/wash/elute protocol
• Hemoglobin removal from whole blood lysates extracted from dried blood cards
• Hemoglobin removal from frozen and fresh whole blood
• Blood proteins and enzymes are enriched for potential biomarker and proteomic studies.
• Disposable, cost-effective hemoglobin depletion sample preparation protocol
• Removes hemoglobin from whole blood of diverse species including human, mice, sheep, bovine,
goat, rat, etc.
Hemovoid Blood Card Research Applications
The HemoVoid™ Blood Card produces enriched proteins free of hemoglobin which are used for biomarkers
and protein analysis(B). The hemoglobin enriched filtrate could have hemoglobin variants, hemoglobin
binding proteins or other analytes optimal for biomarker studies(A).
Abs at 410 nm shows presence of hemoglobin.
Proteins extracted from dried blood card show high hemoglobin concentration.
After HemoVoid™ treatment, hemoglobin is severely depleted.
