Preparation And Storage

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. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

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.

Product Notices

  1. When using high concentrations of antibody, background binding of this dye to erythroid fragments produced by ammonium chloride-based lysis, such as with BD Pharm Lyse™ Lysing Buffer (Cat. No. 555899), has been observed when the antibody conjugate was present during the lysis procedure. This may cause nonspecific staining of target cells, such as leukocytes, which have bound the resulting erythroid fragments. This background can be mitigated by any of the following: titrating the antibody conjugate to a lower concentration, fixing samples with formaldehyde, or removing erythrocytes before staining (eg, gradient centrifugation or pre-lysis with wash). This background has not been observed when cells were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat. No. 349202) after staining.
  2. 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.
  3. Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/us/s/resources for technical protocols.
  4. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  5. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  6. Please observe the following precautions: We recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to protect exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to any room illumination. Absorption of visible light can significantly affect the emission spectra and quantum yield of tandem fluorochrome conjugates.
  7. 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.

90/CD38

The 90 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD38, a 42 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein on immature and mature, resting and activated, B lymphocytes. In contrast to humans, CD38 expression is down-regulated on mouse germinal center B cells and plasma cells. CD38 is also expressed on a subpopulation of thymic and peripheral T cells, NK cells, and splenic macrophages. Furthermore, CD38 has been detected on bone marrow-derived hematopoietic stem cells. The CD38 molecule is reported to exhibit both cyclase and hydrolase activities and plays a role in lymphocyte activation. CD31, both human and mouse, is reported to be a ligand for human CD38.

RB705
The BD Horizon RealBlue™ 705 (RB705) Dye is part of the BD® family of blue dyes. It is a tandem fluorochrome with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) at 498-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 707-nm as measured using an antibody-dye conjugate. Driven by BD® innovation, RB705 can be used on both spectral and conventional cytometers and is designed to be excited by the Blue laser (488-nm) with minimal excitation by the 561-nm Yellow-Green laser. For conventional instruments equipped with a Blue laser (488-nm), RB705 can be used as an alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5 or BB700 and we recommend using an optical filter centered near 710-nm (e.g., a 695/40 or 710/50-nm bandpass filter). For spectral instruments equipped with a Blue laser (488-nm), it can be used in conjunction with PerCP-Cy5.5. RB705 is on average brighter than PerCP-Cy5.5 and BB700, and has minimal spillover into Yellow-Green detectors.
