The Anti-Kappa antibody, clone TB28-2, is derived from the hybridization of P3-X63-AG8.653 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells isolated from CB6F1/J (C57BL/6J × BALB/cJ) mice immunized with human IgG, κ myeloma protein.The Anti-Kappa antibody specifically recognizes kappa (κ) light chains of human immunoglobulins.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV711 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. This dye is a tandem fluorochrome of BD Horizon BV421 with an Ex Max of 405-nm and an acceptor dye with an Em Max at 711-nm. BD Horizon BV711 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in a filter used to detect Cy™5.5 / Alexa Fluor® 700-like dyes (eg, 712/20-nm filter). Due to the excitation and emission characteristics of the acceptor dye, there may be moderate spillover into the Alexa Fluor® 700 and PerCP-Cy5.5 detectors. However, the spillover can be corrected through compensation as with any other dye combination.
