InnovaCoat® GOLD - 20OD 80nm Gold Conjugation Kits
InnovaCoat® GOLD conjugation kits
InnovaCoat® GOLD conjugation kits enable the covalent attachment of antibodies, proteins, peptides and other biomolecules to gold nanoparticles with a proprietary InnovaCoat® coating. The hands-on time is around 30 seconds and the gold conjugate is ready to use after 20 minutes.
InnovaCoat® GOLD conjugation kits features and benefits
|Quick and easy to use||Save time, no special knowledge required|

What can I do if my antibody preparation contains interfering substances?
If your antibody buffer is not compatible with our kits, we have developed the AbPure antibody purification kit range that allows you to quickly and simply purify your antibody and is fully compatible with InnovaCoat® GOLD.
Please consult the kit protocols to see the antibody amount/volume suitable for each kit.
Does the antibody bind to the metal surface?
No. The protective surface coat completely shields the metal surface and prevents direct metal-antibody interactions. For this reason, you cannot use InnovaCoat® GOLD for passive conjugation of antibodies.
Can antibodies from different species be used?
Yes, the InnovaCoat system has been tested with antibodies from a variety of species including mouse, rabbit, goat and sheep.
What type of linkage to gold is formed?
The antibody becomes covalently and irreversibly attached via lysine residues to the InnovaCoat® surface.
Can antibody fragments be conjugated?
Yes. One of the advantages of the protective coat is that it is less likely than a bare metal surface to cause denaturation and loss of affinity of the antibody fragments.
What if I need bulk material?
The kit that you have purchased is a convenience product for rapid production of small quantities of conjugate for screening purposes. Bulk quantities of InnovaCoat GOLD can be provided in a variety of formats. Please enquire.
Is the kit suitable for conjugating analytes and other small molecules?
Yes, but please contact Innova technical services. Depending on the functional groups on your analyte you may need a different type of surface or different chemistry for optimal results.
Confirm the success of your antibody conjugation with our Check&Go! kit, a nitrocellulose membrane containing a ‘Test line’ of immobilized Protein A and Protein G called a “half strip”. The Conjugate Check&Go! strips allow visualization of conjugates generated using our nanoparticles and beads at different concentrations of antibody.
