Can Sulfo-NHS displace NHS? 06 Feb 2007 01:00 #1

Sulfo-NHS is used in crosslink between nanoparticle and target protein, can it also be used in the amine coupling of biacore experiments?

I also wonder how long can I use the prepared EDC and NHS in Amine Coupling Kit of biacore company.The storage time was always short when I got it. It's bad when use old EDC/NHS? And what's the best storage condition for them?

Thank you!

I normally go to Pierce with this kind of questions. They are great in their explanation. Look at:

Thank Arnoud very much!
In some biosensor experiments, some user suggested to prepare NHS and EDAC before amine coupling.They won't use it after 24h. How do you store them? I stored them separately little volume at -20C before. Is it right?

I usually make separate aliquots of NHS and EDC enough for four immobilizations like the biacore protocol for amine coupling.
I store the aliqouts at -20 degrees for up to one year. This seems to work for NHS and EDC.
In addition I do the same for the ethanolamine.
