Streptavidin (SA-5000-1)

Purchase this product from 2BScientific


Streptavidin is a 60 kDa non-glycosylated protein composed of four identical subunits, each of which has a binding site for biotin. Our streptavidin is isolated from Streptomyces avidinii by a specific affinity system which results in a homogeneous, ultrapure streptavidin with very low nonspecific binding characteristics.

Unconjugated streptavidin is recommended for use in solid-phase assays and immunohistochemical applications when the technique of sequential addition of reagents (sandwich technique) is employed. This reagent has also been effectively employed in subtractive hybridization procedures.


  • Resembles egg white avidin in its biotin binding properties
  • In most applications streptavidin and avidin are interchangeable
