This webinar will introduce the principles and importance of bioconjugation and include a discussion of the types of functional groups on biomolecules that can be targeted. Learn strategies for creating custom conjugates with high stability and reproducibility. See some of the most commonly used reagents for bioconjugation, including new hydrophilic reagents for increased biocompatibility, and get efficiency tips for the most popular reactions and reactive groups.

During this webinar you will:

  • Learn how to design better bioconjugates and choose the best reagents and reactions for producing them
  • Learn strategies for creating custom conjugates with high stability and reproducibility
  • Gain tips for running most popular bioconjugation reactions with the greatest efficiency
