Imagine an optimized system with time-after-time consistency that provides increased sensitivity and saves you time and money!

The High Sensitivity Conjugation Kit is a complete “classroom-in-a-box” with detailed protocols to help you produce robust covalently-bound conjugates. This kit is available with our ultra-bright 150 nm gold nanoshells as the reporter particle and includes everything you need to optimize your conjugations.

Benefits of the kit include:

  • Pre-validated consumables eliminate the risk of purchasing non-compatible reagents, saving weeks to months of unnecessary troubleshooting
  • Increase your assay sensitivity up to 20-fold with 150 nm gold nanoshells compared to 40 nm gold* nanoparticles
  • Reduces antibody costs up to 65% compared to physisorption
  • Saves time by reducing the number of conjugations necessary to find optimal antibody pairs
  • Increases conjugate stability in a wide range of sample matrices
  • Eliminates the need for repeated pH and salt sweeps for each new lot of gold nanoparticles
  • Precisely controls the number of antibodies on the particle surface and extends the dynamic range in competitive assay formats
  • Includes answers to frequently asked questions and troubleshooting tips to help you rapidly succeed in your diagnostic development projects

Already a conjugation expert? This kit eliminates the need to pre-screen and validate critical reagents and supplies to ensure your best chance of success when starting out with covalent conjugation to gold nanoshells*.
