Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

Anti-Hu–IL-2, clone 5344.111, is derived from a fusion of Sp2/0 myeloma cells with splenocytes from BALB/c mice immunized with recombinant human IL-2.

Anti-Human Interleukin-2 (Anti-Hu–IL-2) recognizes a 15- to 18-kilodalton (kd) glycoprotein.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
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.
