LNK041B CJ 3 Conjugations For 200µg Antibody
LYNX Rapid Biotin (Type 1) 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 the additional use of a streptavidin labelled reagent. For customers intending to capture their conjugate on Streptavidin coated plates, we recommend our LYNX Rapid Biotin (Type 2) Antibody Conjugation Kit instead.

Product Details

Reagents in the Kit
3 Vials of 100ug 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.

If possible, avoid buffers containing nucleophilic components such as primary amines and thiols (e.g. thiomersal/thimerosal) 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 100-200ug antibody be used in each labelling reaction. For optimal results the antibody volume should be 40-100ul, at a concentration range of 1-4mg/ml.

Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution

We recommend that for each conjugation the user determines the best antibody:conjugate ratio.
Instructions For Use
1. To the antibody sample add 1ul of the Modifier reagent for every 10ul of antibody and mix gently.

2. Pipette the mixed antibody-modifier sample directly onto the LYNX lyophilized mix and gently pipette up and down twice to resuspend.

3. Replace cap onto vial and incubate at room temperature (20-25oC) for 3 hours, or overnight if preferred.

4. After incubation, add 1ul of Quencher reagent for every 10ul of antibody used. Leave to stand for 30 minutes before use.
