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

LYNX Rapid Streptavidin Antibody 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.

Preparing The Antibody
Pack Size: 3 Conjugations For 10µg 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 LYNXTM 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 10ug antibody be used in each labelling reaction. For optimal results the antibody should be at a concentration of 1mg/ml, with a maximum volume of 10ul and a maximum antibody amount of 10ug. Antibody at a concentration of greater than 1mg/ml requires dilution. Antibody below 1mg/ml can still be used as long as the maximum volume is not exceeded. Using less than the recommended amount of antibody may result in unbound label, but this will be removed during subsequent application wash steps. Antibody below 0.5mg/ml should be concentrated before use with the kit.

It is recommended that 100ug antibody be used in each labelling reaction. For optimal results the antibody should be at a concentration of 1mg/ml, with a maximum volume of 100ul and a maximum antibody amount of 100ug. Antibody at a concentration of greater than 1mg/ml requires dilution. Antibody below 1mg/ml can still be used as long as the maximum volume is not exceeded. Using less than the recommended amount of antibody may result in unbound label, but this will be removed during subsequent application wash steps.

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 LYNXTM 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.
