Vector Laboratories is closed for the President’s Day on Monday, February 19th. We will be back in the office on Tuesday, February 20th.
We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

DBCO-PEG4-NHS Ester (CCT-A134)



DBCO-PEG4-NHS Ester reacts specifically and efficiently with a primary amine (e.g., side chain of lysine residues or aminosilane-coated surfaces) at pH 7-9 to form a covalent bond. The hydrophilic polyethylene glycol (PEG) spacer arm imparts water solubility and provides a long and flexible connection that minimizes steric hindrance involved with ligation to complementary azide-containing molecules.
