Description and Specification


Description Pierce Iodination Beads
Formulation Polystyrene beads (3mm dia.) coated with iodination reagent
Quantity 50 beads
Sufficient For 10 to 50 reactions, each with 0.1 to 0.5 mg of protein


  • Derivatized, uniform, nonporous polystyrene beads
  • Radioiodide incorporation as high as 99%; labeled protein recovery >90%
  • Functions over a broad pH and temperature range
  • Fast and easy to use: iodinations complete in 2 to 15 minutes
  • Reaction stopped by simply removing beads from reaction mixture with tweezers or pasteur pipet; no reducing agent necessary to terminate reaction

Additional Features:

  • Iodinates in the presence of azides, detergents, urea and high salt
  • Allows efficient iodination of cell membrane surface proteins
  • More gentle method for iodination than soluble chloramine-T because there is no contact between the protein and the immobilized oxidizing agent1
  • Highly reproducible iodinations
  • Can be used to quantitatively iodinate histidine at pH 8.22
