BD Pharmingen™
Hamster (QC Testing)
Mouse BALB/c IgG2b, κ
Pooled Armenian hamster IgG mAb
ELISA (Routinely Tested), Flow cytometry (Tested During Development)
0.5 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

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

Recommended Assay Procedures

For the sandwich hamster IgG (group 1) ELISA, biotin-conjugated mAb G94-56 is optimal for detection with purified anti-hamster IgG mAb HIG-632 (Cat. No. 550637) for capture and Cat. No. 553969 as protein standard. Biotin-conjugated G94-56 mAb may be used as a secondary reagent in immunofluorescent staining. For immunohistochemical staining, we recommend the use of biotinylated anti-hamster IgG mAb cocktail in our special formulation for immunohistochemistry, Cat. No. 550335.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. 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.
  4. Although hamster immunoglobulin isotypes have not been well defined, BD Biosciences Pharmingen has grouped Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG monoclonal antibodies according to their reactivity with a panel of mouse anti-hamster IgG mAbs.

Based on ELISA, the G94-56 antibody reacts specifically with Armenian and Syrian hamster IgG1 monoclonal antibodies, but has low reactivity with some other hamster IgG groups.  The G94-56 mAb does not react with hamster IgM.

Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
