Say goodbye to secondary antibodies – Go direct using the World’s Easiest DIY Antibody Labeling Kit - Lightning-Link™!
• Eliminates need for secondary antibodies • Reduces the number of wash steps • Ideal for multi-protein analysis – with over 40 available labels • Very easy to use • 100% antibody recovery
The DIY Lightning-Link™ kit allows you to label an antibody with minimal hands-on time - less than 30 seconds. Simply add your antibody solution to a tube of Lightning-Link™ mix and the label becomes covalently attached to your antibody in a gentle controlled process. Lightning-Link is the easiest and quickest method available for antibody conjugation.
Direct antibodies labelling greatly simplifies immunodetection techniques. Without the problems of crossover and/or non-specific binding from secondary reagents it is far easier to obtain high quality, pioneering results in techniques such as flow cytometry, ELISA, Western blotting and immunohistochemistry. A reduction in the number of incubation and wash steps also saves you time and money.
The antibody conjugate:
Atto390 is one of a new generation of fluorescent labels with a coumarin structure. It has a strong absorption at 390nm, high fluorescence at 479nm (extinction coefficient 2.4 x104 cm-1M-1) and high quantum yield. Atto390 can be used as a substitute dye for Cascade Blue, Alexa Fluor 405, and Cascade Yellow.
