Product nameStreptavidin Resin - Amintra®
DescriptionStreptavidin Resin - Amintra®
Streptavidin Resin - Amintra® (ab270530) provides a simple, rapid and reliable method to purify biotin and biotinylated substances.
This product is manufactured by Expedeon, an Abcam company. Expedeon product code ASA0002 was previously called Amintra Streptavidin resin - 2 ml medium (4 ml in 50% slurry) and is the same as the 2 mL size of this product. Expedeon product code ASA0005 was previously called Amintra Streptavidin resin - 5 ml medium (10 ml in 50% slurry) and is the same as the 5 mL size. Expedeon product code ASA0010 was previously called Amintra Streptavidin resin - 10 ml medium (20 ml in 50% slurry) and is the same as the 10 mL size.
Purified streptavidin isolated from Streptomyces avidinii is immobilized on highly cross-linked 6% agarose. The immobilized streptavidin binds biotin and biotinylated substances and can be used for affinity chromatography applications. The interaction between streptavidin and biotin is very strong and requires denaturing conditions for elution, which may destroy both the ligand and the sample. Alternatively, it can be used in the purification of antigens, where biotinylated antibodies are incubated with antigen.
The biotinylated antibody-antigen complex binds to Streptavidin Resin - Amintra® from which the antigen can be eluted. The base matrix of Streptavidin Resin - Amintra® is a robust, high- cross linked 6% agarose. The crosslinking of the base matrix has been optimized to give the matrix good flow properties and high physical and chemical stability, both of which are key factors for cost-effective, large-scale use.
