Supplier: Dako (view all products)

For use in methods demanding a very high specificity. The specificity and performance of the antibody have been ascertained in immunohistochemistry and ELISA. Additionally, the specificity has been tested by crossed immunoelectrophoresis using 12.5 microlitre antibody per square cm gel area against 2 microlitre human plasma. The antigen used for immunization is serum IgA.

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.

Please note that F(ab’)2 fragment antibodies are not suited for techniques dependant on aggregation or precipitation of antigen-antibody complexes.
