Preparation And Storage

The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by negative adsorption and affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to APC under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free APC were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

The purified antibody solution was passed through solid-phase immunoadsorbent gels to minimize cross-reactivity with mouse, human, cow, and horse serum proteins.

Recommended Assay Procedures

This antibody stains rat peripheral B cells, and it has little reactivity with rat non-B splenocytes or mouse splenocytes. As a second step, it is reactive with rat IgG and IgM monoclonal antibodies; a weaker signal is detected when the primary antibody has a rat IgG2b isotype. It has weak cross-reactivity detectable by flow cytometry with some, but not all, hamster immunoglobulins. Consequently, it may be useful as a primary reagent in immunofluorescent staining of rat antibody-producing cells or as a secondary reagent for staining of mouse leukocytes after reaction with rat Ig primary antibodies. However, we have observed that the reactivity of polyclonal second-step antibodies to mouse or rat IgM may be reduced after adsorption against Ig of rat or mouse, respectively. Because this anti-rat Ig antibody was adsorbed with mouse Ig, it may be weakly reactive with some rat IgM primary antibodies.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

Down Arrow Up Arrow
Allophycocyanin (APC), is part of the BD family of phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 660 nm. APC is designed to be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 660 nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
