BD Pharmingen™
Rat (QC Testing)
Mouse SJL IgG2b, κ
Rat Pooled IgG
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. Store undiluted at 4°C.

Recommended Assay Procedures

Purified Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2a (Cat. No. 553893) is routinely tested by ELISA for its ability to recognize and bind Rat IgG2a, kappa (clone R35-95) and Rat IgG2a, lambda (Clone B39-4) while not binding all other Rat Ig isotypes.  Biotin Rat Anti-Mouse IgG2b (clone R12-3; Cat. No. 553393) along with a streptavidin reporting system is used for detection.

For sandwich Rat IgG2a ELISA, Biotin Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2a (Cat. No. 553894) is optimal for detection with Purified Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2a (B46-7; Cat. No. 553918) for capture. RG7/1.30 antibody is effective for detection of cell-surface or intracellular Ig by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric detection of intracytoplasmic IgG2a, we recommend FITC Mouse Anti-Rat IgG2a (Cat. No. 553896).

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. Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.

The Rg7/1.30 antibody reacts specifically with the Fc region of rat IgG2a. It does not react with other Ig isotypes.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
