LYNX Rapid Plus Biotin (Type 1) Antibody Conjugation Kit® enables the rapid conjugation of a pre-prepared lyophilized mixture containing Biotin label to an antibody or protein in minutes. Activation of proprietary reagents within the antibody-label solution results in the coupling of the antibody to Biotin.

The LYNX Rapid Plus 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 and no requirement for desalting or dialysis.

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 Plus Biotin (Type 2) Antibody Conjugation Kit instead.

Preparing The Antibody
Pack Size: 3 Conjugations For 20µg 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), thiols (e.g. Thiomersal/Thimerosal), Merthiolate, Glycine or Proclin. These substances 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 10-20 μg antibody be used in each labelling reaction. For optimal results the antibody volume should be 4-10 μl, at a concentration range between 1mg/ml and 2.5 mg/ml.

It is recommended that up to 100-200 μg antibody be used in each labeling reaction. For optimal results the antibody volume should be 40-100 μl, at a concentration range between 1mg/ml and 2.5 mg/ml.

Instructions For Use
1. Before you add antibody to the Lynx Rapid Plus mix, add 1 μl of Rapid Modifier reagent for each 10 μl of antibody to be labelled. Mix gently.

2. Remove the screw cap from the vial of Lynx Rapid Plus mix and pipette the antibody sample (with the added Rapid Modifier) directly onto the lyophilised material. Resuspend gently by withdrawing and re-dispensing the liquid once or twice using a pipette.

3. Replace cap on the vial and leave standing for 15 minutes at room temperature (20-25 0C). Longer incubation times could have negative effects on the conjugate.

4. After 15 minutes incubation, add 1 μl of Lynx Rapid Plus Quencher reagent for every 10 μl of antibody used. The conjugate can be used after 4 minutes. The conjugates do not require purification.
