Regarding your protein CSB-CF022654HU, could you please advise on the lead time, the sequencing, the pricing, and the expected tag information?
Also, how long after the expression begins would you know what kind of tag this protein is ultimately going to have?
Lastly, what is the expected purity?

Very nice to receive your inquiry.
Expression Region: 1-254 aa; Full length.
Tag information:Tag type will be determined during the manufacturing process. (The expected tag is N-terminal 10xHis-tagged)


The expected tag of CSB-CF022654HU is N-terminal 10xHis-tagged, if you have any special requirement for the tag, you can communicate with us in advance.
Generally, the tag of this protein can be confirmed in 15-20 working days after we receive your order.
Regarding the purity, the minimum purity that we can guarantee is 85%, which means that the purity of final protein will be above 85%.
If the customer requires much higher purity than 85%, pls remark this requirement in the order, we can try our best, but as we have never expressed, so we can't guarantee it can reach 90% or 95%.
