Isothiocyanobenzyl-EDTA adds EDTA moieties to proteins through their amine groups. The EDTA-tagged protein can then be labeled with heavy metal ions and radioactive metals, such as 111In and 99Tc, and used for immunoimaging.
When it is difficult to take out all the powder from the container,
please add the solvent into a container and dissolve it before its use.
