This kit contains everything you need to rapidly label an antibody. The labeling procedure comprises simple mixing of your antibody and the optimally formulated biotin reagent in the reaction buffer provided, followed by a brief incubation. The resulting solution is ready for staining without further purification. The kit is suitable for labeling commercially available primary antibodies, either directly or after a simple antibody clean-up step. After labeling, the biotin is covalently linked to the antibody.
This labeling kit is for labeling 5-20 μg antibody with a proprietary biotin reagent.
The Mix-n-Stain biotin antibody labeling kit can be used to attach this important hapten to biomolecules of interest for subsequent signal amplification detection with enzyme or fluorescent labeled streptavidin, avidin or neutravidin
Features and Benefits
Mix-n-Stain CF dye antibody labeling kits dramatically simplify the process of preparing fluorescently labeled antibodies, particularly primary antibodies. Simply mix your antibody with a CF dye of your choice in the buffer provided, a step that takes less than 30 seconds of hands-on time. After waiting for another 30 minutes, without a separation step, you will have a fluorescent antibody conjugate that is as good as the best pre-labeled fluorescent antibody you can buy from some of the leading suppliers. There is no need to calculate how much dye you should use; just mix your antibody with the entire amount of dye provided and you will always produce optimal labeling. Moreover, the labeling reaction can tolerate the presence of common stabilizers, such as sodium azide, Tris, glycerol and low level of BSA.
The kit consists of 1 vial each of Mix-n-Stain Dye, Mix-n-Stain Reaction Buffer (10x), Mix-n-Stain Storage Buffer, and an ultrafiltration vial.
