LANCE® Eu-W1024-ITC Chelate is optimized for the labeling of proteins and peptides at least one primary aliphatic amino group. The labeled compound can be used in homogeneous time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer (TR-FRET) assays (LANCE® assays).

  • Isothiocyanate (ITC) activated chelates react primarily with free amine groups such as ones a N-terminus of protein or lysine residues. 
  • LANCE® W1024 Series chelates are preferred in most HTS applications due to their lower fluorescent background in TR-FRET assays. 
  • For most LANCE™ applications the W1024 series of Eu chelates with active group can be used. Usable pH range 5-11. Under neutral conditions W1024 remains stable in EDTA concentrations up to 20 mmol/L. Allophycocyanin (APC)- or ULight-labeled compounds can be used as acceptors for LANCE® TR-FRET assays.

LANCE® (Lanthanide chelate excite) and LANCE® Ultra are our TR-FRET (time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer), homogeneous (no wash) technologies. One molecule of interest is labeled with a donor fluorophore (a LANCE Europium chelate) and the second molecule is labeled with an acceptor fluorophore [ULight™ dye, allophycocyanin (APC)]. Upon excitation at 320 or 340 nm, energy can be transferred from the donor Europium chelate to the acceptor fluorophore if sufficiently close for FRET (~10 nm). This results in the emission of light at 665 nm (for ULight dye and APC).

Eight Limitations of ELISA and How to Overcome Them Using Alternative Technologies

The introduction of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) in the early 1970’s offered researchers a non-radiometric immunoassay platform without compromising sensitivity. Over the last 50 years scientists have made huge strides in disease research and drug discovery and a demand for greater assay throughput and sensitivity has evolved. In response, more robust immunoassays have been developed to address some of the limitations of the standard, colorimetric ELISA.

Find out about the most common limitations of traditional ELISAs and how different ELISA alternative technologies address these limitations.
