DescriptionPro-fluorescent reagent which forms a fluorescent product on reaction with primary or secondary amines.
Pro-fluorescent reagent which forms a fluorescent product on reaction with primary or secondary amines. Similar to NBD chloride (ab145315) except that it is much more reactive toward amines. Both reagents are nonfluorescent until they react with primary or secondary amines to produce a fluorescent product. Extensively used as a derivatizing reagent for chromatography analysis of amino acids and low molecular weight amines.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
