Supporting COVID-19 Research

covid 19 top en


The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic united the research community in their efforts to develop diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines for the new disease working for the benefits of the people in need and to stop the spread of the virus. This led to many clinical studies to better understand the biology of the virus and its impact on human health. Here in Japan, scientists used the wheat germ cell-free protein expression system from CellFree Sciences to rapidly prepare representative fragments from several COVID-19 proteins to do antibody development and to conduct serological tests. These studies build on previous experience using proteins made in the wheat germ system for the development of serological markers.


Reagents for Rapid Protein Expression

Use our WEPRO7240 Core Kit for rapid protein expression in the wheat germ system. The kit provides all necessary reagents to conduct linked cell-free protein expression experiments on different reaction scales. Sufficient reagents are provided to test protein expression first before scaling up production of selected protein targets. The Core Kit is also available in a dedicated WEPRO7240H version for preparing proteins having a His-tag.

*Note, the WEPRO7240 Core Kit does not contain any expression vector for the wheat germ system. Our vector set can be purchased separately from here.
