Dextran, Aldehyde Functional
Aldehyde functional Dextran
Aldehyde functionalized dextrans are capable of reacting with primary amine groups via so called Schiff reaction. Nanocs provides a variety of chemically functionalized and bioconjugated dextran products with molecular weight ranged from 3,000 Da to 2,000 KDa. These functional dextrans were purified by size chromatography to remove non-conjugated molecules and ensure adequate applications both in-vitro and in-vivo.
Dextrans are naturally synthesized polysaccharides with good water solubility, low toxicity and varied molecular weights. Dextrans modified with dyes and other biomolecules have been successfully used as long-term tracers for live cells. Nanocs also provides customerized dextran products for your special needs.
- 1~50 aldehyde groups on each dextran molecule depends on molecular weight of dextran.
- Dextran conjugates provided in dried powder form;
- Store at -20 0C.
