Pierce™ High Sensitivity Streptavidin-HRP (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific Pierce High Sensitivity Streptavidin-HRP, 0.5 mL is an exclusive peroxidase-conjugated streptavidin biotin-binding protein that provides signal amplification like poly-HRP and exceptional storage stability.

Features of High Sensitivity Streptavidin-HRP, 0.5 mL:

High sensitivity—detect low levels of target without background; obtain high signal-to-noise ratios
Cost effective—use less conjugate in Western blotting and ELISA applications and still obtain excellent results
Flexible—compatible with typical chemiluminescent, fluorescent and colorimetric peroxidase substrates
Convenient—ready-to-use stabilized liquid format means there is no waiting for thawing and no need to aliquot

This specially-manufactured variety of HRP-conjugated streptavidin protein meets the demands of today's scientists for more sensitive detection in ELISA and Western blotting applications. The conjugate is suitable for use with chemiluminescent, chemifluorescent or colorimetric substrates. Each High Sensitivity HRP conjugate is packaged in an easy-to-use stabilized solution that enables convenient storage at 4°C for at least one year.

Our High Sensitivity HRP Conjugates outperform the competition on target detection, signal intensity and signal-to-noise ratios. Experiments indicate that the High Sensitivity Streptavidin-HRP can be diluted 8-to 10-fold more than traditional HRP conjugates and still produce similar results.

Streptavidin, tetramethylrhodamine conjugate (Invitrogen™)

The streptavidin, tetramethylrhodamine conjugate has excitation and emission maxima ~555/580 and is widely used to detect biotinylated probes by fluorescence microscopy.

Pierce™ Streptavidin (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific Pierce Streptavidin is a purified unconjugated recombinant protein form.

Features of Streptavidin:

Recombinant streptavidin—high-quality protein, 53kDa, pI = 6.8 to 7.5
Pure protein —choose pure, unconjugated protein for biotin blocking and controls

The purified recombinant Streptavidin enables detection of biotinylated antibodies and other probes in a variety of standard assay methods, including Western blotting, ELISA, immunohistochemistry and fluorescence imaging. Purified streptavidin is supplied as lyophilized in phosphate-based buffers for immediate reconstitution with water.

Streptavidin is biotin-binding protein that was originally isolated from Streptomyces avidinii. In contrast to avidin, streptavidin has no carbohydrate and has a mildly acidic pI of 5. Thermo Scientific Pierce Streptavidin products use a recombinant form of streptavidin having a mass of 53,000 daltons and a near-neutral pI. Streptavidin is a tetrameric protein, with each subunit binding one molecule of biotin with affinity similar to that of avidin. Guanidinium chloride will dissociate avidin and streptavidin into subunits, but streptavidin is more resistant to dissociation.

eBioscience™ Streptavidin Super Bright 600 Conjugate (Invitrogen™)

eBioscience Streptavidin Super Bright 600 is a streptavidin-fluorochrome conjugate for indirect staining protocols to detect biotinylated primary antibodies in flow cytometry. Super Bright dyes are polymer-based fluorophores that are excited by the violet laser (405 nm) and emit fluorescence at the wavelength indicated in their name. They are optimized for use in flow cytometry and allow for use of additional channels with violet excitation. Super Bright dyes are fully compatible with other commonly used fluorescent molecules, eBioscience buffers and fixatives, viability stains, and reagents.

Super Bright 600 is a tandem dye that can be excited with the violet laser line (405 nm) and emits at 600 nm. We recommend using a 610/20 bandpass filter or equivalent. Please make sure that your instrument is capable of detecting this fluorochrome.

Applications tested
Streptavidin Super Bright 600 Conjugate has been tested by flow cytometric analysis to detect biotinylated primary antibodies. The amount of this conjugate that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 μL is less than or equal to 0.125 μg. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 105 to 108 cells/test. It is recommended that the streptavidin be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.

Samples can be stored in IC Fixation Buffer or 1-step Fix/Lyse Solution for up to three days in the dark at 4°C with minimal impact on brightness and FRET efficiency/compensation. Clone specific performance after fixation should be determined empirically.

When using two or more Super Bright dye-conjugated antibodies in a staining panel, it is recommended to use Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer to minimize any non-specific polymer interactions. Please refer to the datasheet for Super Bright Complete Staining Buffer for more information.

Super Bright polymer dyes are sold under license from Becton, Dickinson and Company.

Streptavidin, R-Phycoerythrin Conjugate (SAPE) - 1 mg/mL (Invitrogen™)

Streptavidin is a bacterially derived biotin-binding protein that exhibits less nonspecific binding than avidin. Phycoerythrin also known as R-Phycoerythrin (RPE) is an intensely bright phycobiliprotein isolated from red algae with absorption maxima at approximately 496, 546 and 565 nm, and a fluorescence emission maximum of ~578 nm. Used in flow, microplate assays and microarrays, this has remained one of our top three selling products for decades—a proven performer that you can trust.

Important Features of Streptavidin RPE
• Biotin Detection with high quantum efficiency photoprotein
• 5–10 times brighter than organic fluors
• High water solubility
• Ideal for Flow, microarrays and microplate assays
• Also available as Premium grade with higher purity confirmed by HPLC (S21388)

Streptavidin and RPE
The high affinity of avidin, an egg-white protein, for biotin was first exploited in histochemical applications in the mid-1970s. Avidin, and its bacterial counterpart, streptavidin (from Streptomy cesavidinii), have since become standard reagents for diverse detection schemes. Streptavidin, a nonglycosylated 52,800-dalton protein, exhibits less nonspecific binding than avidin.

Rhodophyta Phycoerythrin (RPE) has a MW of 240,000 Daltons and has a quantum efficiency of 78% making it an incredibly bright reagent. However, the photostability is extremely poor and is not traditionally recommended for microscopy. But the broad absorption and bright orange signal may it ideal for flow, microplate and microarray applications whenever sensitive detection of biotins is required.
