Vector Laboratories’ affinity-purified antibodies are of
unmatched quality. These antibodies are prepared using
proprietary immunization schedules that produce high
affinity antibodies. The antibodies are then purified by affinity
chromatography, and cross-reactivities that are likely to
interfere with specific labeling are removed by solid phase
adsorption techniques. The biotinylated secondary antibodies
are conjugated to ensure the maximum degree of labeling
without compromising the specificity or affinity of the
antibody. These antibodies are subjected to rigorous quality
control assays and can be used for tissue and cell staining,
ELISAs, and blots.
Most of these antibodies are supplied in lyophilized form and
can be reconstituted with 1 ml water. With some exceptions
the recommended dilution for most applications is 1:200.
(H+L) indicates the antibody recognizes both heavy and light
