Lightning-Link® PE-Texas Red Antibody Labeling Kit Summary
Lightning-Link antibody labeling kits enable the direct labeling of antibodies, proteins, peptides or other biomolecules for use in R&D applications, drug discovery and the development of diagnostic kits (See protocol for further information).
Our PE/Texas Red antibody labeling kit enables the direct conjugation of the PE/Texas Red tandem dye to any biomolecule with an available amine group. The researcher simply pipettes the antibody or other biomolecule into the vial of Lightning-Link label and incubates for 3 hours.

PE/TEXAS RED is a tandem conjugate. The PE functions as an energy donor for the TEXAS RED has three maximal absorbance values of 498, 544 and 566nm, the optimal depending on the application. Energy is transferred from the PE to the TEXAS RED via energy resonance transfer. The TEXAS RED emits the energy received from the PE in the form of long wavelength light at 618nm.
Antibody Labeling Kit
By circumventing the desalting or dialysis steps that commonly interrupt traditional antibody conjugation procedures, LightningLink technology can be used to label both small (e.g. 10 ug) and large quantities of primary antibodies with ease. Batch-to-batch variation upon scale up is minimal as the process is so simple, and recoveries are always 100%. This kit is supplied with 3 vials, each suitable for labeling up to 60 ug of antibody.
Packaging, Storage & Formulations
- 1 or 3 glass vial(s) of Lightning-Link mix
- 1 vial of LL-Modifier reagent
- 1 vial of LL-Quencher reagent
Lightning-Link is a one step antibody labeling kit, requiring just 30 seconds hands-on time. The antibody is covalently bonded to the label in a directional and controlled process at near-neutral pH.
Label - PE/Texas red is a tandem conjugate. The PE is excited at 488nm and functions as an energy donor for the Texas red. Energy is transferred from the PE to the Texas red via energy resonance transfer. The Texas red emits the energy received from the PE in the form of long wavelength light at 615nm.
Despite its simplicity, Lightning-Link is a very sophisticated conjugation system in which the antibody is directionally coupled to the label (and not to itself) in a controlled fashion, creating high quality conjugates. As the procedure is not interrupted by desalting steps, trial conjugates can be prepared with microgram quantities of protein and then scaled up with ease. Lightning-Link eliminates problems associated with scale up; hands-on time is essentially independent of process scale. Consistency from batch to batch is easy to achieve, and recoveries approach 100%.
