LinkedONTM SMART Grids Kits
LinkedONTM grid kits revolutionize modern sample preparation for EM by promoting crosslinking of biological molecules and nanomaterials to the grid surface through bifunctional linkers.
Dune offers several standard kits that covalently link common functional groups found on proteins, antibodies, nucleic acids, latex beads, pharmaceuticals, and other ligands to SMART Grids. LinkedON Kits are also suitable for amine, carboxyl, or thiol-functionalized nanoparticles. The kits include all necessary materials and step-by-step instructions for linking target materials to the grid surface. User supplies purified target molecule/analyte. Once a sample is conjugated to the surface, the grids can be used to probe interactions of biological molecules or nanomaterials in a variety of environments.
- Concentratration of viruses and biomolecules on surface from dilute solutions.
- Tethered molecules retain biological function.
- Robust multi-step liquid phase processing.
- Robust CryoEM sample preparation.
- Compatibility with optical detection assays for correlative analysis.
- Environmental fate of nanoparticles can be monitored.
