N,O-Bis(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide (BSTFA) is a versatile silylation reagent used to form stable trimethylsilyl derivatives that are volatile. CovaChem's BSTFA is GC and GC/MS derivatization grade, and is routinely used to derivatize carboxylic acids, phenols, steroids, amines, alcohols, and alkaloids and amides. This reagent is ideally suited to form derivatives with smaller molecules. This reagent is available with or without the TMCS catalyst.

  • BS2G Crosslinker

    BS2G (Sulfo-DSG) is a water soluble amine (amino) reactive homobifunctional crosslinker.
  • CHCA MALDI Matrix

    CHCA MALDI Matrix is a reagent used to create ions for MALDI-MS and MALDI TOF TOF analysis of protein and peptide molecules below 4,000 Daltons. TOF TOF mass spectrometry is one of the more common forms of MALDI-MS/MS, although several other types of mass spectrometers can also be coupled to MALDI instrumentation.
  • DCC (Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide)

    N,N''-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) is a zero length crosslinker. Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide is a coupling reagent used to couple carboxylic acids (COOH) to primary amines (-NH2).
  • DryBlend MES Buffered Saline, pH 4.7

    MES buffered saline is ideally suited for protein cross linking reactions.
  • DSS Crosslinker

    Disuccinimidyl Suberate (DSS) is a homobifunctional crosslinker that reacts with primary amines.
  • DST Crosslinker

    Disuccinimidyl tartrate (DST) is an amine reactive, water soluble, cleavable crosslinker. DST is a homobifunctional crosslinker that is reactive towards amines
