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:
PE/Cy5.5 is a tandem conjugate. The PE is excited at 490nm and functions as an energy donor for the Cy5.5. Energy is transferred from the PE to the Cy5.5 via energy resonance transfer. The Cy5.5 emits the energy received from the PE in the form of long wavelength light at 695nm.
