Directions for Use
Use of a 10 mM Biotin-LC-LC-NHS solution is recommended. In order to efficiently biotinylate a sample, Biotin-LC-LC-NHS should be used at a 15-fold molar excess over the amount of amine-containing protein. Make sure to calculate the 10 mM biotin solution amount to be used with respect to the molar value of the sample (see example below).
* Do not store reagent in solution.

Calculate A uL of 10 mM biotinylation reagent solution :
For 2mg IgG (150,000 M.W.)
2 [mg IgG] x 10-3 [g/mg] x 1/150,000 [mol/g] x 15 [fold]
= A [uL of 10 mM B6096 solution] x 10-6 [L/uL] x 10 [mmol/L] x 10-3 [mol/mmol]

A = 20 [uL of 10 mM B6096 solution]

1. Bring Biotin-LC-LC-NHS (Product No. B6096) to room temperature.
2. Dissolve 2 mg of Biotin-LC-LC-NHS (Product No. B6096) in 350uL of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) or dimethylformamide (DMF) and prepare a 10 mM solution of Biotin-LC-LC-NHS.
3. Dissolve the sample (1-10 mg/mL) in an amine-free buffer with pH between 7 and 9 such as PBS. Do not use buffers containing amines such as Tris.
4. Add A uL of 10 mM Biotin-LC-LC-NHS solution to the sample solution.
5. Incubate the mixed solution for 30 min at room temperature.
6. Remove unreacted and hydrolyzed reagent using desalting column or dialysis methods according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
