Fluorescent streptavidin-dextran conjugates are widely known as the gold standard for analyzing qualitative binding between T-cell receptors and T-cell antigens1-3.  Fina Biosolutions offers rPE and APC-conjugated streptavidin-dextrans at competitive prices. Our fluorescent streptavidin-dextran conjugates use our well characterized 500 kDa amino dextran and have been extensively tested with live cells as well as PFA-fixed material.  Streptavidin-dextrans with other fluorescent dyes can be prepared as custom products. 

Multimers are used to stain T cells for flow cytometry and histology. The name stems from the docking of multiple biotinylated peptide-MHC molecules (pMHCs) onto a backbone.  The backbone can be either a single fluorochrome-conjugated streptavidin molecule, which can bind up to 4 pMHCs (“tetramer”) or a fluorochrome-SA-dextran backbone.  The highly multivalent presentation of tetramers on a flexible, hydrophilic polymer reveals low-affinity interactions.
