CreaTag™ 2-AB (2-aminobenzamide) Glycan Labeling Kit [For Glycan Labeling] (CAT#: CB-P287-K) Datasheet

Product Type
The kit contains reagents for coupling the dye to the free reducing end of the glycan through a reductive amination reaction.
Number of Samples: Typically, up to 15 separate analytical samples per set of labeling reagents.
Amount of Sample: From 25 pmol up to 25 nmol glycans per sample.
Suitable Samples: Any purified glycans with free reducing termini can be labeled.
Structural Integrity: No detectable (< 2 mole per cent) loss of sialic acid, fucose, sulfate, or phosphate.
Labeling efficiency: Typically> 85 % (dependent on sample).
Labeling Selectivity:Essentially stoichiometric labeling
For labeling of free glycans with 2-aminobenzamide acid (2-AB).
Glycoproteins and glycopeptides containing N-linked glycans
2-AB Dye (2-Aminobenzamide) 5 mg
DMSO 350 µL
Acetic acid 200 µL
Sodium cyanoborohydride (Reductant) 6 mg
Handling Advice
Ensure that any glass, plastic ware or solvents used are free of glycosidases and environmental carbohydrates. Use powder-free gloves for all sample handling procedures and avoid contamination with environmental carbohydrate. • Once individual vials of reagents are opened, their contents should be used immediately and excess then discarded according to local safety rules.
Store at room temperature in the dark. Protect from sources of heat, light, and moisture. The reagents are stable for at least two years as supplied.
Shelf Life
Stability: Stable at least 12 months when stored properly. Several days exposure to ambient tempertures will not reduce activity.
