Preparation And Storage

The antibody reagent is stable until the expiration date shown on the label when stored at 2° to 8°C. Do not use after the expiration date. Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep the outside of the reagent vial dry.

Do not use the reagent if you observe any change in appearance. Precipitation or discoloration indicates instability or deterioration.

Antibody Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow

The Anti-Cytokeratin (CAM 5.2) reagent is a murine monoclonal antibody used for qualitative identification of normal cells and malignant cells of epithelial origin in tissue sections (paraffin and frozen) and cytocentrifuge preparations. The clinical interpretation of any staining or its absence should be complemented by morphological studies and proper controls (such as positive, negative, and isotype-matched controls). All tests should be performed by a qualified individual.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
