Cytodiagnostics AptamerREADY™ Gold NanoUrchin Conjugation Kits have been optimized for high efficiency one-step conjugation of thiolated aptamers directly to the gold surface.
The kit contains ready-to-use pre-made mixtures. No activation, manipulation or time consuming "salt-aging" steps are required for conjugation. Simply mix your thiol-modified aptamer with the pre-activated gold NanoUrchins supplied in the kit. Conjugation of the aptamer is achieved by the formation of a strong and stable gold-thiol bond.
- 10 vials of 50nm AptamerREADY™ Gold NanoUrchins (lyophilized) - Sufficient for generation of 10 x 0.2 ml gold conjugate at OD=10
Features & Benefits
- Results in thiol-aptamer bound directly to the gold surface through a stable thiol-gold bond.
- Fast and convenient one-step conjugation reaction with no pre-activation requirements.
- Does not require time consuming salt aging procedures saving you valuable research time.
