Protein Labeling and Conjugation Services
Labeled proteins allow us to study specific molecular interactions with high sensitivity in complex biological systems. They are important reagents in numerous biological applications such as assays, purifications, protein arrays, localization studies, flow cytometry, clinical imaging and much more. The quality of labeled proteins is critical for consistent and reliable data. Although labeling procedures appear to be simple and straightforward, most of them still need to be adjusted to take into consideration the nature of a protein in order to achieve the desired results. Possible problems during labeling procedures include protein losses due to precipitation, sample manipulation & instability, inconsistent label-to-protein ratio, incomplete removal of an unconjugated labeling probe, and poor protein characterization before and after labeling. In addition, new labeling technologies had emerged for site-directed labeling requiring an integration of protein expression and purification into the labeling process. We have extensive experience with various protein labeling techniques and are confident that we can provide you with high-quality labeled reagents for your downstream applications.Request a Quote.
