Preparation And Storage

The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by negative adsorption and affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

This antibody was purified from goat antiserum and was passed through solid-phase immunoadsorbent gels to minimize cross-reactivity with rat, human, bovine, and horse serum proteins (multiple adsorption).

Recommended Assay Procedures

Flow cytometry:  As a second step reagent for staining rat splenocytes, it is reactive with mouse antibodies having the IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3, IgM, and IgA isotypes. However it has been reported that reactivity with some mouse IgM monoclonal antibodies is weak. Minimal background staining of rat leukocytes occurs in the absence of primary antibody. In addition, it stains mouse peripheral B lymphocytes with no non-specific staining of other splenic leukocytes. Therefore, it is useful as a primary reagent in immunofluorescent staining of mouse B cells and antibody-producing cells and as a secondary reagent for staining rat leukocytes with mouse antibodies, particularly mouse IgG. For optimal staining of human leukocytes, with mouse IgG and IgM primary antibodies, FITC goat anti-mouse IgG + IgM (human-, bovine-, and horse-adsorbed, Cat. No. 555988) is recommended.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Fluorescein (FITC) is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This is a small organic fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 494-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 518-nm. FITC is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 520 nm (e.g., a 530/30-nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
