APC-H7 Mouse anti-Human Ig, κ Light Chain
APC-H7 Mouse anti-Human Ig, κ Light Chain

Flow cytometric analysis of Ig κ Light Chain expression on human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were incubated in complete tissue culture medium overnight in order to minimize subsequent nonspecific immunofluorescent staining. The cells were harvested and stained with Alexa Fluor® 488 Mouse anti-Human CD19 (Cat. No. 557697) and either APC-H7 Mouse anti-Human Ig κ Light Chain antibody (Cat. No. 561325; Right Panel) or APC-H7 Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 560167; Left Panel). The two color flow cytometric dot plots showing the correlated expression of Ig κ Light Chain (or Ig isotype control staining) versus CD19 were derived from events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable lymphocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with APC-H7 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and APC-H7 were removed.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. Please observe the following precautions: Absorption of visible light can significantly alter the energy transfer occurring in any tandem fluorochrome conjugate; therefore, we recommend that special precautions be taken (such as wrapping vials, tubes, or racks in aluminum foil) to prevent exposure of conjugated reagents, including cells stained with those reagents, to room illumination.
  5. 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.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.
  7. BD APC-H7 is a tandem conjugate and an analog of APC-Cy7 with the same spectral properties. It has decreased intensity but it is engineered for greater stability and less spillover in the APC channel and consequently offers better performance than APC-Cy7. It has an absorption maximum of approximately 650 nm. When excited by light from a red laser, the APC fluorochrome can transfer energy to the cyanine dye, which then emits at a longer wavelength. The resulting fluorescent emission maximum is approximately 767 nm. BD recommends that a 750-nm longpass filter be used along with a red-sensitive detector such as the Hamamatsu R3896 PMT. As with APC-Cy7 special filters are required when using APC-H7 in conjunction with APC. Note: Although our APC-H7 products demonstrate higher lot-to lot consistency than other APC tandem conjugate products, and every effort is made to minimize the lot-to-lot variation in residual emission from APC, it is strongly recommended that every lot be tested for differences in the amount of compensation required and that individual compensation controls are run for each APC-H7 conjugate.
  8. Although BD APC-H7 is engineered to minimize spillover to the APC channel and is more stable and less affected by light, temperature, and formaldehyde-based fixatives, compared to other APC-cyanine tandem dyes, it is still good practice to minimize as much as possible, any light, temperature and fixative exposure when working with all fluorescent conjugates.

APC-H7
The BD Horizon™ APC-H7 dye is a part of the BD APC red family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a Allophycocyanin (APC) donor that has excitation maxima (Ex Max) of 659 nm and an acceptor dye, H7, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 782 nm. APC-H7, driven by BD innovation, is designed to be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 780 nm (e.g., a 760/60 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
