Eliminate the need for antibodies and reduce assay time with direct detection using our radiolabeled ligands, which provide for sensitive and quantitative measurement of binding.
High specific activity — The majority of our 125I-labeled ligands are offered at maximum specific activity. This means virtually every molecule of ligand provided in the stock vial is radiolabeled. For tritiated ligands (3H ligands), pick a ligand with specific activity above 20 Ci/mmol – all of our tritiated ligands meets or exceeds these requirements.
High purity — We offer highly-pure radioligands for the highest specific signal with low background in binding assays.
High selectivity — Our broad portfolio of agonists and antagonists offers many options for choosing the most selective compound for your receptor.
Validated for receptor binding — all of our radioligand products are tested for receptor binding during development. Additionally, many of our radioligands are used to QC our GPCR and receptor cell lines and cell membrane products.
5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, or serotonin) labeled with tritium. It is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter which is tied to positive mood, certain involuntary muscle control, and countless other functions.
Diclofenac sodium, labeled with C-14 on the phenylacetic acid ring. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that acts as an antagonist at peroxisome prolifeator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ or PPARG).
N-Methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+) acetate, tritiated on the methyl group. MPP+ is a substrate for the organic cation ion transporter (OCT), the dopamine transporter (DAT), the norepinephrine transporter (NET), and the serotonin transporter (SERT).
5-Hydroxytryptamine Binoxalate (Serotonin Binoxalate), labeled with C-14 at the 1-position. 5-Hydroxytryptamine is a neurotransmitter and is the endogenous ligand for serotonin receptors. NEC855 replaces product NEC225, which was labeled at the 2-position.
Paroxetine (Paxil), tritiated at the phenyl-6' position. Paroxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). This product has a scheduled lot release for the first Monday in May and November.
Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), tritiated on the N-methyl group. LSD is a partial agonist of dopamine D2 receptors. It also binds most serotonin receptors (5-HT1A, 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B, 5-HT2C, 5-HT5A, 5-HT5B and 5-HT6). This product has a scheduled lot release for the second Monday in April, August and December.
Escitalopram (Cipralex), tritiated at the N-methyl position. Escitalopram is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) with high selectivity for the serotonin transporter (SERT) compared to the norepinephrine transporter (NET).
