The β-Microglobulin antibody, clone TÜ99, is derived from the hybridization of P3-NS1/1-Ag4-1 mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells isolated from BALB/c mice immunized with a human uncloned primed lymphocyte typing (PLT) cell line.

The β-Microglobulin antibody specifically recognizes β-microglobulin, a 12-kilodalton (kDa) protein with homology to the constant region of immunoglobulin molecules.

PerCP-Cy5.5 dye is part of the BD blue family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a fluorescent protein complex (PerCP) with an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 482 nm and an acceptor dye with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 676 nm. PerCP-Cy5 is designed to be excited by the blue laser (488-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 680 nm (e.g., a 695/40 nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be partially excited by the Violet (405-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
