Biotinylated Standards

Matreya’s new line of biotinylated sphingolipids are ideal for use in sphingolipid research, taking advantage of the strong and specific interaction of biotin with streptavidin/avidin. These sphingolipid analogs contain a biotin label attached to the amine of the sphingosine moiety via a hexanoic acid linker which maintains the sphingolipid’s natural properties. The biotin label allows for easy attachment of the sphingolipid to streptavidin/avidin proteins. This attachement makes them extremely useful for binding to substrates,1 ELISA testing,2 and for toxin detection. Matreya’s biotinylated products have a natural ceramide backbone to maintain its natural properties and a biotin label for very specific streptavidin/avidin binding.
