I try not to intrude on scientific discussions in methds-reagnts with
commercial interests.  However, there are times when it is appropriate
to let the scientific community know that there are products which may
not be commonly known that can solve their problems.  This is such a
case.  We have a  product available which is able to remove SDS from
alkaline lysis samples as well as other more purified samples.  Let me
know if you desire more information.
