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 R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cell and CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  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. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  5. Please refer to to access safety data sheets (SDS).
  6. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The RP-1 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the RP-1 Antigen. This cell surface marker is expressed on rat peritoneal and peripheral blood neutrophils. Amongst bone marrow cells, the RP-1 Antigen is expressed on band form and mature neutrophils but is not expressed on promyelocytes, myelocytes, and metamyelocytes. The RP-1 antibody does not bind to either rat monocytes, macrophages, eosinophils or to peritoneal neutrophils from mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, or to human peripheral blood neutrophils. Expression of the RP-1 Antigen on rat peritoneal neutrophils is enhanced by cellular stimulation with Phorbol 12-Myristate 13-Acetate (PMA) or Concanavalin A (ConA). Immunoprecipitation and SDS-PAGE analysis of non-treated and PMA-activated rat neutrophil membranes with the RP-1 antibody revealed two main bands of approximately 85 kDa. The RP-1 antibody is also known as the Mouse Anti-Rat Granulocytes antibody.

R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
