BD Tritest™
Phosphate buffered saline with BSA and 0.1% sodium azide.


BD Tritest™ Control, γfluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)/γphycoerythrin (PE)/CD45 peridinin chlorophyll (PerCP), is a three-color direct immunofluorescence reagent used as an isotype (negative) control for flow cytometric immunophenotyping of erythrocyte-lysed whole blood with Tritest reagents on the Becton Dickinson family of flow cytometers. The Tritest Control is used to determine the unstained lymphocyte population on a fluorescence 1 (FL1) vs fluorescence 2 (FL2) display and to determine any nonantigen-specific antibody binding (nonspecific staining) present, particularly that caused by Fc receptors. BDIS Tritest Control is for in vitro diagnostic use with BD in vitro diagnostic Tritest reagents.

Preparation And Storage

1. For in vitro diagnostic use.

2. Store the reagent at 2° to 8°C to maintain stability. Do not use after expiration date shown on the label.

3. Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light during storage or during incubation with cells. Keep the reagent vial dry.

4. Do not use the reagent if you observe any changes in appearance. Precipitation or discoloration indicates instability or deterioration.

5. The antibody reagent contains sodium azide as a preservative; however, care should be taken to avoid microbial contamination, which may cause erroneous results.
