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 to the dye under optimum conditions that minimize unconjugated dye and antibody.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD® CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to BD® CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and BD® CompBeads to ensure that BD® CompBeads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in a multicolor flow cytometry panel.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. When BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer is used in in the multicolor panel, it should also be used in the corresponding compensation controls for all dyes to achieve the most accurate compensation. For the most accurate compensation, compensation controls created with either cells or beads should be exposed to BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer for the same length of time as the corresponding multicolor panel. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

  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.
  5. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  6. The production process underwent stringent testing and validation to assure that it generates a high-quality conjugate with consistent performance and specific binding activity. However, verification testing has not been performed on all conjugate lots.
  7. Human donor specific background has been observed in relation to the presence of anti-polyethylene glycol (PEG) antibodies, developed as a result of certain vaccines containing PEG, including some COVID-19 vaccines. We recommend use of BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer in your experiments to help mitigate potential background. For more information visit

The HI186 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes CD52 which is also known as Cambridge pathology antigen 1 (CAMPATH-1 antigen) or Human epididymis-specific protein 5 (He5). CD52 is an ~25-29 kDa N-glycosylated protein that is encoded by CD52 (CD52 molecule) and is glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked to the membrane. CD52 is expressed on thymocytes, lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, and eosinophils. CD52 is variably expressed on malignant lymphoid cells. Although its functional role is not well characterized, the CD52 antigen serves as target for therapeutic CD52-specific antibodies which are being used clinically to remove lymphocytes from transplanted bone marrow cell preparations, for immunosuppression, and in the treatment of some malignant diseases.

The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 786 (BV786) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a BV421 donor with an Ex Max of 407-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 786-nm.  BV786, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the violet laser and detected using a filter, centered near 785 nm (e.g. 780/60 nm bandpass filter).  Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and filters) are appropriate for this dye.
