Our LPS Extraction Kit is designed to separate and purify Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) present in the outer wall of gram-negative bacteria. This kit can extract LPS from even a small volume of bacterial cells and gives reproducibly high yields of LPS. The protocol takes less than 60 minutes and includes only three steps: lysis of bacterial cells, purification of LPS among the released cell components, and washing to remove salts. This kit provides 100 extractions.

LPS extraction yield

Strain LPS yield (μg) Protein contamination
S. typhimurium 200 ~ 400 < 0.2 μg
S. enteritidis 90 ~ 250 < 0.2 μg
S. gallinarum 150 ~ 450 < 0.2 μg
E. coli (wild type) 220 ~ 490 < 0.2 μg
E. coli (O:055) 260 ~ 510 < 0.2 μg
E. coli (O:111) 220 ~ 500 < 0.2 μg
E. coli (O:1) 180 ~ 380 < 0.2 μg

LPS was extracted from each G (-) strain of OD600 using the LPS Extraction Kit, and the extracted LPS was quantified using the Purpald Assay. The degree of contamination of the protein was confirmed to be less than 0.2 μg.
