Product Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

BD Pharmingen™
Mouse (QC Testing)
Rat IgG2b
Recombinant Mouse IL-4
ELISA (Routinely Tested), Neutralization (Tested During Development)
1.0 mg/ml
No azide/low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.

Recommended Assay Procedures

ELISA:  The purified format of BVD4-1D11 antibody (Cat. No. 554387) can be useful as a capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA for measuring mouse IL-4.  Purified BVD4-1D11 antibody can be paired with the biotinylated BVD6-24G2 antibody (Cat. No. 554390) as the detecting antibody, with recombinant mouse IL-4 (Cat. No. 550067) as the standard. For testing mouse IL-4 in complex biological fluids, such as serum or plasma, investigators may wish to consider using the BD OptEIA™ Mouse IL-4 Set (Cat. No. 555232).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.

NA/LE refers to the culture and purification methods and buffer used to produce purified antibodies with no azide and low endotoxin: Aqueous buffered solution containing no preservative, 0.2µm sterile filtered. Endotoxin level is ≤0.01 EU/µg (≤0.001 ng/µg) of protein as determined by the LAL assay.NA/LE are perfectly suited to be used in culture or in vivo (for nonhuman studies) for functional assays — blocking, neutralizing, activation or depletion — where the presence of azide may damage cells or exogenous endotoxin may signal or activate cells.
