BD Pharmingen™
Human (QC Testing)
Intracellular staining (flow cytometry) (Routinely Tested)


Reacts with a 110 kDa-type I-transmembrane glycoprotein expressed in cytoplasmic granules of monocytes/macrophages, dendritic cells, granulocytes, myeloid progenitor cells and, reportedly, a subset of CD34+ hemopoietic bone marrow progenitor cells.  CD68 belongs to the sialomucin family and its function has not been fully elucidated.  This antibody could be useful in studies of myeloid cell development.

Preparation And Storage

The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.

Recommended Assay Procedures

We recommend the use of Cytofix/Cytoperm (Cat. No. 554714) for the cells fixation and permeabilization, and then do the intracellular staining.

Product Notices

  1. This antibody has been optimized and preassayed with its matched isotype control to be used at the recommended volume of 20 ul/test. Titration of the reagents or substituting with other (non-matched) isotype control is NOT recommended.
  2. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  3. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  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.
  5. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
