Phosphate buffered saline with gelatin and 0.1% sodium azide.
Preparation And Storage
The antibody reagent is stable until the expiration date shown on the label when stored at 2° to 8°C. Do not use after the expiration date. Do not freeze the reagent or expose it to direct light during storage or incubation with cells. Keep the outside of the reagent vial dry.
Do not use the reagent if you observe any change in appearance. Precipitation or discoloration indicates instability or deterioration.
CD117 is intended for in vitro diagnostic use in the identification of cells expressing CD117 antigen, using a BD FACS™ brand flow cytometer. The flow cytometer must be equipped to detect light scatter and the appropriate fluorescence, and be equipped with appropriate analysis software for data acquisition and analysis. Refer to your instrument user’s guide for instructions.

PE-Cy7 dye is a part of the BD PE family of dyes. This tandem fluorochrome is comprised of a R-Phycoerythrin (PE) donor that has excitation maxima (Ex Max) of 496-nm and 566-nm and an acceptor dye, Cy™7, with an emission maximum (Em Max) at 781-nm. PE can be excited by the Blue (488-nm), Green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 781 nm (e.g., a 760/60-nm bandpass filter). The donor dye can be excited by the Blue (488-nm), Green (532-nm) and yellow-green (561-nm) lasers and the acceptor dye can be excited by the Red (627–640-nm) laser resulting in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
