As the inventor of spin column based protein extraction and cell fractionation technologies, Invent Biotechnologies offers disruptive solutions for scientists around the world that simplify, accelerate, and improve their scientific endeavors. Our proprietary processes and formulations are revolutionary and have fundamentally changed how protein samples are prepared. With years of research and development, we have discovered the fastest, easiest, and most reliable ways for protein extraction and cell fractionation.


For the first time ever, the tasks that used to be tedious, lengthy, and unpredictable can now be performed by just a couple of quick spins using a tabletop centrifuge, delivering unsurpassed speed, convenience, consistency, and accuracy by eliminating uncontrollable variables associated with traditional solution-based procedures. Being the pioneer and front runner of the spin column based technologies for protein research, we continually look for and create better solutions that make biomedical research faster, easier and more reliable.
It becomes our obligation to introduce the spin column based technologies to the world.

We have a mission to perfect protein research with simpler and smarter approaches.
