This is a personalized conjugation kit (PerKit™) to work with any protein with a MW over 20 KDa and for protein labeling of a small molecule containing carboxylic acid (-COOH) functional groups. Using the kit components, the customer converts the carboxylic acid to an activated N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) ester, followed by reaction with the surface amino groups of the protein to form a stable amide bond. The final product is desalted to remove any unreacted small molecule acid. 

This kit provides materials to label 15-50 nmole of one protein sample (≥20 KDa)

If you have less than 15 nmole of protein or the MW of protein is less than 20 KDa, you can contact us for a custom conjugation
If you would like CellMosaic to perform the conjugation instead, please add PerKit Custom Conjugation (AS1002) along with this kit.

Shipping policy: Ship at RT, choose overnight (ships Mon.-Thur.) or 2-day delivery (ships Mon.-Wed.) at checkout.

Requirement for Small Molecule

  • Preferably > 90% pure
  • Absence of primary or secondary amine (-NH2) groups
  • Preferably contains only one non-hindered aliphatic carboxylic acid (-COOH)
  • For molecule containing aromatic carboxylic acid, hindered aliphatic carboxylic acid, or hydroxyl (-OH) groups, please consult CellMosaic first before placing the order.

Key Features of this PerKit™

  • Offers a simple and easy way to label protein with any small molecule containing carboxylic acid
  • Fast and easy preparation: 4 h preparation and <30 minutes hands-on time
  • All reagents and supplies included for preparation and purification
  • Over 90% pure conjugated products by SEC
  • Options to choose tailored services at CellMosaic after conjugation

After conjugation: you can choose to send your sample to CellMosaic for HPLC analysis and calculation of the loading.
