Chitin Hydrolysate is a highly concentrated solution of N-acetylglucosamine and oligomers of this sugar supplied in nearly saturated sodium chloride. This solution can be added to labeled or unlabeled lectins in controls to prevent labeling or agglutination, or it can be used to elute glycoproteins bound to agarose lectins. This mixture is an inhibitor for DSL, GSL II, LEL, STL, and WGA.
Catalog #C4150-05
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsOptimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
NotesChitin Hydrolysate contains a nondialyzable O.D. 280nm of no greater than 0.1.
If a precipitate forms during storage do not warm solution. This may cause further precipitation. Centrifuge or filter the hydrolysate to remove precipitated material.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 6 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
