Description

Streptavidin, fluorescein labeled can be used to detect biotinylated secondary antibodies and other macromolecules in applications such as immunofluorescence, in situ hybridization, or flow cytometry. Amplification of fluorescent signals can be easily achieved with our highly purified fluorescein labeled streptavidin.

Features:

  • Recommended for routine immunofluorescence applications
  • Extremely high affinity for biotin
  • Has an optimal fluorochrome to protein ratio
  • Compared to conventional primary and secondary fluorescent techniques, can provide greater sensitivity and lower background staining
  • Excitation maximum at 495 nm
  • Emission maximum at about 515 nm
  • Color:  Green

Technical Information

Vector Laboratories fluorochrome-conjugated streptavidin and avidin reagents are highly purified and possess very low non-specific binding properties. Using a biotin/avidin or biotin/streptavidin detection system results in an additional layer of amplification over a directly conjugated secondary antibody.
