Bioconjugate Techniques, 3rd Edition, is the essential guide to the modification and cross linking of biomolecules for use in research, diagnostics, and therapeutics. It provides highly detailed information on the chemistry, reagent systems, and practical applications for creating labeled or conjugate molecules. It also describes dozens of reactions, with details on hundreds of commercially available reagents and the use of these reagents for modifying or crosslinking peptides and proteins, sugars and polysaccharides, nucleic acids and oligonucleotides, lipids, and synthetic polymers.

  • Offers a one-stop source for proven methods and protocols for synthesizing bioconjugates in the lab
  • Provides step-by-step presentation makes the book an ideal source for researchers who are less familiar with the synthesis of bioconjugates
  • Features full color illustrations
  • Includes a more extensive introduction into the vast field of bioconjugation and one of the most thorough overviews of immobilization chemistry ever presented

Editorial Reviews

"Most of the chapters address specific systems and reagents such as (strept) avidin-biotin, silane coupling, buckyballs & fullerenes, antibodies, liposome conjugates, and modified nucleotides-as well as a few chapters on observation techniques such as fluorescent probes and isotopic labeling. Also new since the last edition is a chapter addressing immobilization in chromatography.", February 2014 "This is an incomparable and essential guide for any scientist involved in conjugating biologically active molecules. The new edition does not disappoint with its liberal use of color (especially in reaction schemes), expanded pages, and newly added chapters. For those interested in bioconjugate chemistry, you may soon find that this is the only book on your research library shelf!" Rating: 5, February 7, 2014
