Cytodiagnostics unique AptamerREADY™ gold conjugation kits have been optimized for high efficiency one-step conjugation of thiolated aptamers directly to the gold surface of particles with diameters up to 100nm.
The kit contains ready-to-use pre-made mixtures. No activation, manipulation, or time consuming "salt-aging” steps are require for conjugation. Simply mix your reduced thiol-modified aptamer with the pre-activated gold nanoparticles supplied with the kit. Conjugation of the aptamer is achieved by the formation of a strong and stable gold-thiol bond without any additional linkers.
Features & Benefits
- Allows conjugation of aptamers to gold nanoparticles with sizes between 5nm-100nm.
- Fast and convenient one-step conjugation reaction with no pre-activation requirements or manipulation of the gold nanoparticles.
- Does not require time-consuming "salt-aging” procedures.
- Results in a thiol-aptamer conjugated directly to the gold surface without any linkers.
