Contents

Overview

This is the concanavalin A solution we use for FISH and for microscopy applications where the small amount of ions in the "microfluidics" conA might be problematic.

Materials

  • Concanavalin A (MP Biomedicals, cat no: 150710)
  • Sterile H2O


Procedure

Dissolve a 20mg/ml solution of conA in sterile water. Dilute from this mixture down to 2mg/ml in sterile miliQ water. Store the 2mg/ml aliquots at -20°C, thaw just before microscopy or FISH. Concanavalin A solution can be stored at room temperature for several days without losing efficiency.


Notes

Please feel free to post comments, questions, or improvements to this protocol. Happy to have your input!

*Megan N McClean For FISH you will need to dilute this solution further (1:20 dilution in sterile water to 0.1mg/ml concentration)
