Lightning-Link™ Biotin kit (Type A)
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:
The attachment of biotin to biomolecules is an important laboratory technique. Biotin binds to the tetrameric avidin proteins, including streptavidin and neutravidin, with exceptionally high affinity, and this interaction is exploited in various applications such as western blotting, immunohisthochemistry and ELISA. The biotin in this kit has an extended linker to facilitate molecular interactions.
