Aqueous buffered solution containing BSA and ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. 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.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  4. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  5. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

Reacts with CD16b, a glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol-anchored (GPI) protein expressed on human neutrophils. Human CD16 is the low affinity Fc gamma receptor III (Fc gamma RIII) and shows two distinct forms coded by two linked genes. One form is CD16a, a polypeptide-anchored form (Fc gamma RIIIA), present on natural killer cells and macrophages. The other form is CD16b the GPI-anchored form, Fc gamma RIIIB, found on human neutrophils. CD16b is polymorphic and the two codominant alleles are referred to as Neutrophil Antigen 1 (NA1) and Neutrophil Antigen 2 (NA2). Clone CLBgran11.5 reacts with neutrophils expressing the NA1 molecule. CD16b has been reported to participate in immune complex binding by resting neutrophils and also in  neutrophil transendothelial migration by interacting with integrins during the inflammation response process.

R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
