CycloScreen’s cyclodextrins have been proven to be effective in several applications that include:

  • protein refolding and stabilization
  • small chemicals and reagents stabilization
  • quenching of certain detergents
  • extension of reagent shelf-life
  • specific binding of interfering substances
  • transport of chemical compounds

With all three types of cyclodextrins included (α, β and γ as ranked by increasing molecular diameter), the kit offers the option to quickly screen for the most suitable cyclodextrin to a given application. Provided as highly concentrated solutions (5% and 10%), these cyclodextrins can be easily diluted to working concentrations. Working concentrations depend on the application, but typically range from 0.01% to 0.5%. Individual cyclodextrin solutions are available individually and in custom bulk amounts.
