Regulatory Status Legend
Streptavidin is a non-glycosylated protein that is prepared chromatographically from the bacterium Streptomyces avidinii. Streptavidin homotetramers have a particularly high, non-covalent binding affinity for biotin. When conjugated with fluorochromes, streptavidin has been widely used with biotin-conjugated antibodies and other biotinylated specific-binding molecules (eg, recombinant proteins and lectins) to stain cells and tissues for subsequent multiparameter analysis by flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy and imaging. Likewise, when conjugated with an enzyme (eg, Horseradish Peroxidase or Alkaline Phosphatase) and coupled with a colorimetric or luminescent substrate development system, streptavidin has found widespread use along with biotinylated antibodies in a number of applications including Western blot, ELISA, ELISPOT, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry.
Streptavidin was conjugated to BD Horizon BUV395 which has been exclusively developed by BD Biosciences as an optimal dye for use on a 355 nm laser equipped instrument. With an Ex Max at 348 nm and an Em Max at 395 nm, this dye has virtually no spillover into any other detector. BD Horizon BUV395 can be excited with a 355 nm laser and detected with a 379/28 filter.
BUV395 is a UV-excitable dye that has been developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 348 nm and emission max of 395 nm, BUV395 can be excited by the 355-nm laser and detected in a 379/28 filter. This dye is optimal for multicolor flow cytometry because it has little to no spillover into other detectors.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Streptavidin was conjugated with dye under optimum conditions, and unconjugated Streptavidin and free dye were removed
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
