Unrivaled Convenience

Mix-n-Stain™ Maxi Antibody Labeling Kits allow you to rapidly label 1 mg of IgG with one of our next-generation CF® Dyes or other label. Simply mix your antibody with the reaction buffer and optimally formulated dye provided, followed by a 30 minute incubation and addition of the provided stop buffer. Any remaining free dye or other label is no longer reactive at the end of the labeling, so the conjugate is ready for staining without further purification. Note the labeling protocol and buffer requirements for the Maxi kits differ from our original micro-scale Mix-n-Stain™ kits, see the Reaction Compatibility Chart below.

After the reaction, the antibody will be labeled with an average of 4-6 dye molecules per antibody molecule. Mix-n-Stain™ labeling is covalent, so labeled antibodies can be used for multiplex staining without transfer of dyes/labels between antibodies.

Superior CF® Dyes

These kits feature a choice of Biotium’s next-generation CF® Dyes, which were designed for advantages in brightness and photostability compared to Alexa Fluor®, DyLight®, and other fluorescent dyes. Learn more about CF® Dyes. We also offer kits for labeling with Cyanine 555, Cyanine 647, or fluorescein/FITC. See Ordering Information below.

Choose the Right Kit for Your Application

These kits are optimized for a single labeling reaction with 1 mg of IgG. Mix-n-Stain™ kits are not designed to be used for multiple labeling reactions. For smaller-scale conjugation, see our original Mix‑n‑Stain™ CF® Dye Antibody Labeling Kits; original Mix-n-Stain™ kits also have greater tolerance for antibody buffer additives, and provide special protocols for labeling antibodies in buffer with BSA or in ascites fluid. The kits are not recommended for labeling IgM antibodies, which may denature under the reaction conditions.

Mix-n-Stain™ kits can be used to label other proteins, however, the degree of labeling (DOL, or number of dye molecules per antibody) may not be optimal, and the kits are not designed to allow for DOL measurement after labeling. For performing reactions to optimize DOL for your antibody or application, we recommend using our CF® Dye SE Protein Labeling Kits. The kits include everything you need to perform controlled conjugation reactions and post-labeling purification, as well as detailed instructions and correction factors for determining DOL for CF® Dyes.

We offer a variety of kits for labeling antibodies and other proteins:
