Partners

Covaris works closely with industry leaders in life sciences to bring high-quality sample prep solutions to key application areas. Covaris AFA® (Adaptive Focused Acoustics) technology is the basis for reproducible, isothermal, non-contact sample preparation.

Partner Protocols

Covaris partners use AFA to ensure quality and consistency because sample preparation is the critical first step in achieving high-quality analytical results. We are proud to be included in their protocols as an important step in their workflows.

ProtiFi

Covaris and ProtiFITM have partnered to address challenges encountered when performing protein extraction from archived FFPE tissues. The partnership led to the development of a simple, efficient, and optimized proteomics workflow enabled by Covaris and ProtiFI. The Covaris Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) technology combined with the Covaris truXTRAC® FFPE Protein Extraction Kit drastically improves the sample prep by actively removing more paraffin while rehydrating tissue to isolate proteins prior to purification. ProtiFi, a protein purification technology, has developed S-TrapTM columns to trap AFA-released proteins and digest them prior to analysis.
