Catalog No. : PLS-9926
Product Name : DSPE-PEG-FITC, MW 1k
Description :

DSPE-PEG-FITC is a linear heterobifunctional PEGylation reagent with a DSPE phospholipid and a fluorescein FITC dye. Fluorescein often called FITC is a commonly used fluorescent tracer in biology for staining cells, tissues, biomarkers or nanoparticles. It has peak absorption or excitation at 494 nm and maximum emission at 521 nm. It is a useful self-assembling reagent to prepare grafted or PEGylated liposome or micelle while also providing fluorescent dye label/tag. It is often used in targeted drug delivery with the lipid bilayer to improve drug solubility, the PEG to provide stealth property, extend circulation half-life and reduce non-specific protein binding or cell adhesion, and the biotin group to non-covalently bind to targeting molecules including antibody, aptamer, protein, and peptide.
