Why Choose the PichiaPink™ Yeast Expression System?
The PichiaPink™ Yeast Expression System is based on the yeast Pichia pastoris. Advantages of Pichia pastoris include rapid growth, well-defined genetic background, simple media formulation, and easy handling. For over 30 years, Pichia pastoris has been used by labs around the world for producing hundreds of different proteins from many species including human (Ref 1, 2). The PichiaPink™ Yeast Expression System allows convenient and cost-effective protein production from small to large scales.
