SureLight® Europium Amine-Reactive Labeling Kit
SureLight™ Europium Amine-Reactive Labeling Kit is intended for labeling of molecules with europium through an isothiocyanate reaction to be used in the construction of FRET, QRET and Solid Phase Separation assay formats.
- Lyophilized W1024 Chelate, 100µg active chelate
- Europium standard, 0.5ml
- Enhancement Solution, 50ml
W1024 chelate is a fluorescent stable chelate. However, the europium metal can be disassociated from this chelate into a new highly fluorescent chelate using Enhancement Solution. The W1024 chelate is activated with an isothiocyanate group that reacts with free amino groups on molecules to form a covalent thiourea bond.
Materials not supplied:
- Labeling buffer, for most proteins: 50mM carbonate buffer, pH 3 is recommended
- Elution buffer, Tris buffer, 50mM, pH 5 with 0.5% sodium azide
- For proteins: Gel filtration columns NAP5, PD-10 or G-25 column can be used for rapid purification. Alternatively, a Sephadex G50 column for more complete separation or a combination of gel filtration columns to fractionate proteins may be needed for separation of aggregates and dimers from single protein. Spin columns should NOT be used.
- Column decontamination buffer, elution buffer with 1mM EDTA
- Spectrophotometer (for protein measurement)
- Time-resolved fluorometer
The chelate, reconstituted in water, should be used the same day.
For long-term storage at -20°C, the chelate should be dissolved in 10 mM sodium succinate buffer (pH5.0) or 10 mM sodium acetate buffer (pH 4.8) and aliquoted.
