Supplier: Dako (view all products)
The antigen used for immunization is serum IgA. The very high specificity has been ascertained in immunohistochemistry as well as in indirect ELISA and immunoblotting. Additionally, the specificity has been tested by crossed immunoelectrophoresis using 12.5 µL antibody per square cm gel area against 2 µL human plasma.
The F(ab’)2 fragment antibody is particularly useful for labeling unfixed blood cells containing active Fc receptors, and for other applications where the Fc part of the antibody molecule could disturb.
