Radiometric detection is considered the gold standard for many applications, from drug discovery and development to plant sciences. The technique achieves sub-femtogram sensitivity levels, and quantitates the binding and activity of radiolabeled compounds with high specificity and sensitivity. As the leading supplier of research radiochemicals, we offer a broad portfolio of products for any radiochemistry need.
Our radiochemical analysis products include:
Radionuclides such as 124I, 14C, 89Zr, 90Y, 125I, 131I, 22Na, 32P, 35S, 3H, 45Ca, 51Cr, 54Mn, 55Fe, 59Fe, 85Sr
EasyTag™ protein labeling mixes
EasyTide radiolabeled nucleotides
NEN radiolabeled compounds
SPA Enzymatic assays and imaging beads
Our radiolabeled compounds are useful in a wide range of applications:
Research in cancer, CNS and neurologic disease, cardiovascular and metabolic disease, inflammation, and other disorders
Kinetic and mechanistic studies
Radiometric cAMP assays
Detection of binding to over 80 different receptor types
Our radiometric reagents are not reliant on the use of antibodies for detection and read-out – just one of the reasons they are so widely used.
2-deoxy-D-glucose, labeled at the 1,2 position with tritium. This glucose analog is readily transported into most cells and cannot be further metabolized, and is commonly used in glucose uptake assays.
Deoxycytidine triphosphate (dCTP) is a nucleoside triphosphate that is used whenever DNA is synthesized, such as in the polymerase chain reaction. 125I dCTP may be used to produce cDNA transcripts of viral or mRNA.
3H Muscimol radioligand. Muscimol acts as a potent selective agonist at GABAA receptors. It also acts as a partial agonist at GABAA-rho receptors. This product has a scheduled lot release for the second Monday in February and August. NOTE: NET574001MC will be obsolete soon.
Human growth hormone (HGH), labeled with 125I. Human growth hormone stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in animals. HGH functions to regulate body composition, fluid homeostasis, glucose and lipid metabolism, skeletal muscle and bone growth.
