How stable will my new conjugate be?
FAQ from Innova Biosciences

The Lightning-Link® chemistry joins the label to the antibody via a uni dirrectional stable, covalent bond. The stability of your conjugate will therefore be dependant on your antibody and label of choice.

In our in-house studies, conjugates made with our Lightning-Link® kits were fully active after more than 18 months' storage, undiluted, at 4°C. Conjugates stored in 50% glycerol at -20°C were found to be even more stable (several years). Please see below for advice on storage conditions.

Please note that tandem dye stability is lower than the other dyes'. Tandem conjugates are fully stable for about 3 months at 4°C.
