Fina Biosolutions_Streptavidin Conjugates
Streptavidin-dextran conjugates are soluble dextrans with the streptavidin covalently linked to the polymer. The product is water soluble and has strong binding affinity towards biotin. They are versatile polymers that can be used to increase the valency of biotinylated reagents.
Fina Biosolutions provides Streptavidin-dextrans with dextran backbones of 250 kDa, 500 kDa and 2000 kDa. The conjugates are purified by size exclusion chromatography to remove non-conjugated molecules. Custom ratios & configurations and bulk amounts are available. Please inquire.
A certificate of analysis is provided with each conjugate.
Streptavidin dextran conjugates provided are in sterile PBS at 100µg/ml.
Storage Conditions: Store at 4°C. Protect from light.

Fluorescent Streptavidin Dextrans
Fluorescent streptavidin-dextran conjugates are widely known as the gold standard for analyzing qualitative binding between T-cell receptors and T-cell antigens (1-3). Fina Biosolutions offers rPE and APC-conjugated streptavidin-dextrans at competitive prices. Our fluorescent streptavidin-dextran conjugates use our well characterized 500 kDa amino dextran and have been extensively tested with live cells as well as PFA-fixed material. Streptavidin-dextrans with other fluorescent dyes can be prepared as custom products.
Multimers are used to stain T cells for flow cytometry and histology. The name stems from the docking of multiple biotinylated peptide-MHC molecules (pMHCs) onto a backbone. The backbone can be either a single fluorochrome-conjugated streptavidin molecule, which can bind up to 4 pMHCs (“tetramer”) or a fluorochrome-SA-dextran backbone. The highly multivalent presentation of tetramers on a flexible, hydrophilic polymer reveals low-affinity interactions.
