- LYNX Rapid Biotin (Type 2) Antibody Conjugation Kit® enables the rapid conjugation of a pre-prepared lyophilized mixture containing Biotin label to an antibody or protein. Activation of proprietary reagents within the antibody-label solution results in the coupling of the antibody to Biotin, which has an extended spacer.
The LYNX Rapid Conjugation kit® can be used to label small quantities of antibody/protein at near neutral pH, allowing a high conjugation efficiency with 100% antibody recovery.
This kit has been optimized for use in assays in which the conjugate is captured by a Streptavidin labelled plate. For customers intending to complex their conjugates with a Streptavidin detection reagent, we recommend our LYNX Rapid Biotin (Type 1) Antibody Conjugation Kit.
Approx. Protein Concentrations
Reagents In The Kit
1 Vial of 1mg LYNX lyophilized Biotin mix
1 Vial LYNX Modifier reagent
1 Vial LYNX Quencher reagent
Preparing The Antibody
The following buffer solutions are recommended:for preparing the antibody:
10-50mM amine-free buffer (e.g HEPES, MES, MOPS and phosphate) pH range 6.5-8.5, although moderate concentrations of Tris buffer (<20mM) may be tolerated.
Do not use buffers containing nucleophilic components e.g primary amines and thiols since they may react with LYNX chemicals. Azide (0.02-0.1%), EDTA and common non-buffering salts and sugars have little or no effect on conjugation efficiency.
It is recommended that up to 2mg antibody be used in each labelling reaction. For optimal results the antibody volume should be 400-1000ul, at a concentration range equal to or greater than 1mg/ml.
Store kit at -20oC only.
Newly-conjugated antibody can be stored at 4oC. For long term storage however, the addition of a preservative is recommended.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted.
Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
