San Jose, CA, April 04, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The labeling of proteins and antibodies with fluorescent dyes can play a crucial role in flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry and fluorescent in-situ hybridization techniques. Incorporating its high performance HiLyte Fluor™ dyes in a ready-to-use kit, AnaSpec has introduce its new line of AnaTag™ Protein Labeling Kits as a convenient method for labeling proteins with AnaSpec dyes.
AnaTag™ Protein Labeling Kits are designed for fast and convenient kit labeling of primary and secondary antibodies. Containing all essential components for conjugation reaction and purification of dye-protein conjugates, AnaSpec notes that labeling time can be as short as 30 minutes. Available in two reaction sizes: micro-scale (200 ug x 3 reactions or 100 ug x 5 reactions) and larger scale (5 mg x 3 reactions).
Utilizing both AnaSpec’s proprietary HiLyte Fluor™ dyes as well as classic dyes, AnaTagTM Protein Labeling span the spectrum from blue to far red and NIR.
The succinimidyl ester (SE) reactive form of the labeling dye reacts with the amine group on the protein and forms stable carboxamide bonds which are identical to and as stable as the natural peptide bond. These dye protein conjugates are very stable and are suitable for immunofluorescent staining, fluorescence in situ hybridization, flow cytometry and other biological applications.
AnaSpec, Inc. is a leading provider of integrated proteomics solutions to pharmaceutical, biotech, and academic research institutions throughout the world. With a vision for innovation through synergy, AnaSpec focuses on three core technologies: peptides, detection reagents (dyes, assay kits, & antibodies), and combinatorial chemistry.
