NEUROBIOTIN® PLUS Tracer

Product Description

  • NEUROBIOTIN-PLUS Tracer, 5 mg, is a biotin label that is impervious to cleavage and breakdown by biotinidase. It is a superior alternative to injected tracers like biocytin that are rapidly degraded by biotinidase, a loss of stability that significantly reduces the viable postinjection period and may compromise complete detection of a neural network. NEUROBIOTIN-PLUS Tracer contains fixable amine groups, is highly soluble and has a low molecular weight, making it ideal for experiments requiring long postinjection survival times and optimal uptake along the entire neural tract. It shares the same key advantages of NEUROBIOTIN Tracer (Cat. No. SP-1120) over biocytin and other neuronal labels—better solubility, more efficiently iontophoresed, remains in cells longer, non-toxic, and can be fixed with formalin or glutaraldehyde. NEUROBIOTIN-PLUS Tracer can be detected using avidin or streptavidin systems with either chromogenic or fluorescence visualization methods.
