Aqueous buffered solution containing BSA and ≤0.09% sodium azide.
Preparation And Storage
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. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
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).
Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
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.
Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
The 19.2 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD206 which is also known as the macrophage mannose receptor (MMR) or C-type lectin domain family 13 member D (CLEC13D). CD206 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein of approximately 162 kDa which binds to glycoconjugates containing mannose, fucose, or N-acetylglucosamine. These carbohydrates are present on the surface of many microorganisms and enable the macrophage to bind to microorganisms through the MMR and internalize them during the process of phagocytosis. CD206 is expressed on human macrophages, endothelial cells, and cultured dendritic cells. It is not detected on resting monocytes. Mannose receptor expression is upregulated on peripheral blood mononuclear cells following 3 day incubation with GM-CSF.

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.
