Product Name :
Mouse anti Human CD15-NA FITC

Description :
| Clone MCS-1 | Isotype IgG3 | Product Type Single-Color Reagent | Units 50 Tests | Host Mouse | Species Reactivity Human | Application Flow Cytometry

Background :

Source :
CD15-FITC is a monoclonal antibody (MAb) labelled with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) designed for use as a direct immunofluorescence reagent in the identification and enumeration of cells which express the CD15 antigen by flow cytometry. The CD15 MAb is applied for the initial evaluation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) together with a panel of other antibodies. Interpretation of results must be made within the context of the patientÕs clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a certified professional. Synonyms: Non-Agglutinating CD15, FITC Labeled <

Product :
Provided as an aqueous buffered solution containing protein stabilizer and 0.09% sodium azide. Product Form: FITC Purification Method: Affinity Chromatography Concentration: Titered for flow cytometry

Specificity :

Applications :
This CD15 antibody is an IgG3 antibody as compared to other CD15 antibodies available which are IgM’s. These IgM’s cause the cells labeled with them to aggregate in the cytometer and read as one cell, producing lower numbers of cells to be reported. Our CD15 antibody does not cause the cells to aggregate, yielding much more accurate results. Functional Analysis: Flow Cytometry Staining

Storage :
Product should be stored at 4-8°C. DO NOT FREEZE Product Stability: See expiration date on vial Shipping Conditions: Ship at ambient temperature, do not freeze, refrigerate upon arrival

Caution :
This product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals. It may contain hazardous ingredients. Please refer to the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for additional information and proper handling procedures. Dispose product remainders according to local regulations.This datasheet is as accurate as reasonably achievable, but our company accepts no liability for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information.

Antibodies are immunoglobulins secreted by effector lymphoid B cells into the bloodstream. Antibodies consist of two light peptide chains and two heavy peptide chains that are linked to each other by disulfide bonds to form a “Y” shaped structure. Both tips of the “Y” structure contain binding sites for a specific antigen. Antibodies are commonly used in medical research, pharmacological research, laboratory research, and health and epidemiological research. They play an important role in hot research areas such as targeted drug development, in vitro diagnostic assays, characterization of signaling pathways, detection of protein expression levels, and identification of candidate biomarkers.
