Frequently Asked Questions:
Q1. What functional groups do I need on my protein?
Lightning-Link requires amine groups on the molecule to be labeled. Most proteins have lysine and/or alpha-amino groups. All antibodies will have multiple amine functions.
Q2. Can non-antibody molecules be labeled?
Yes. While labeling of antibodies is a major application, the only requirement is that the protein to be labeled has amine functionality.
Q3. Do I need to purify the conjugate?
No. The chemicals used in Lightning-Link are deactivated by the quencher, and the by-products are benign and do not need to be removed.
