Conjugation of proteins or antibodies of interest with various molecular labels is often necessary in biological research in order to facilitate detection or quantification of the labeled protein, its binding partners, or antigens, in the case of labeled antibodies. Molecular labels such as fluorophores or biotin are covalently conjugated to proteins or antibodies through reactions with thiol or amine groups.
Bio-Rad offers LYNX Rapid Conjugation Kits® for fast one-step conjugation of proteins and antibodies using a method that is superior to traditional kits and techniques. In contrast to conventional conjugation, LYNX Conjugation Kits® offer consistent results with no post-conjugation clean up process required; therefore the antibodies are ready to use immediately.
The total conjugation time is fifteen minutes with the LYNX Rapid Plus Conjugation Kits® or three hours with the LYNX Rapid Conjugation Kits®, however the reaction may run overnight without any adverse effects.
We offer biotin, streptavidin, alkaline-phosphatase, and HRP conjugation kits as well as a wide range of fluorophore kits.
