SILAC is a powerful method to identify and quantify relative differential changes in complex protein samples. This approach entails the in vivo metabolic incorporation of heavy 13C- or 15N-labeled amino acids into proteins followed by mass spectrometry (MS) for the accelerated and comprehensive identification, characterization and quantitation of proteins.


  • Flexible–liquid media deficient in both L-lysine and L-arginine and powdered media deficient in L-leucine, L-lysine and L-arginine, allowing for more complete proteome coverage through multiple isotopic amino acid labeling

  • Compatible–DMEM, MEM, RPMI-1640, IMDM, Ham's F12 and McCoy's 5A media and dialyzed FBS are used to culture a variety of cell lines, including HeLa, 293T, COS7, U2OS, A549, A431, HepG2, NIH 3T3, K562 and Jurkat

  • Optimized, specialized media–the Expansion DMEM and Low-Osmolarity DMEM are specifically designed and qualified for mouse embryonic stem cell propagation and SILAC protein expression profiling with mass spectrometry

  • High quality–Stem Cell Screened Dialyzed FBS is tested to ensure that it does not promote stem cell differentiation
