San Diego, California—May 18, 2010-- Many researchers are beginning to employ
oligonucleotides linked to antibodies as a sort of „bar-code? for antibody
immobilization amplification, and detection. While this technology is only just emerging
in the field, the possibilities are numerous.
In order to facilitate assay development using this new class of antibody conjugates,
Solulink has recently launched a new kit that allows researchers for the first time, the
ability to easily make and purify their own antibody-oligonucleotide conjugates for these
highly specific and sensitive assays. The Antibody-Oligonucleotide All-in-One
Conjugation Kit by Solulink, is the first kit to prepare antibody-oligonucleotide
conjugates without chromatography. The kit is designed to conjugate any user-supplied
antibody (100 µg) with any amine-modified oligonucleotide (20 to 60-mer).
“A myriad of applications have been demonstrated; DNA-directed microarrays, PCR-
based antigen detection, hybridization-based signal amplification, etc. Solulink?s new
antibody-oligonucleotide conjugation kit is designed to bring these next-generation
technologies into general use” said Leo Mendoza, Director of Product Development.
Solulink is the leader in the development of conjugation reagents, easy-to-use complete
linking kits, and conjugation services for the life science research, diagnostics, and
pharmaceutical communities. These proprietary products and services provide unique
features and benefits used to link proteins, oligonucleotides, peptides, and antibodies to
each other or to a wide range of surfaces including beads, chips and slides. Solulink?s
new Antibody-Olignucleotide All-in-One Conjugation Kit is the only kit available for
making this type of conjugate without the use of chromatography. It is part of a family of
new, easy-to-use Antibody All-in-One Conjugation Kits intended to enhance assay
performance and measurement for customers in a broad range of markets. Solulink
markets its products both directly and through distributors and licensing partners world-
wide. Solulink is a privately held company located in San Diego, California. For more
