Part of the Springer Lab Manual book series (SLM)


Ammonium sulfate precipitation is an appropriate method to fractionate proteins prior to purification by chromatographic procedures. It is also used for concentrating protein samples. Ultra-pure ammonium sulfate (e.g. supplied by Schwarz-Mann) is recommended. AS may be added as solid compound or by dilution from a saturated stock solution.
