Regulatory Status Legend
BD Horizon™ BV480 Goat Anti-Rat Ig is intended to be a second-step reagent for immunofluorescent staining of cells pre-stained with Rat Ig primary antibodies. It also stains rat B cells and has little reactivity with rat non-B cells or mouse splenocytes. As a second step, it is reactive with rat IgG and IgM monoclonal antibodies although a weaker signal may be detected when the primary antibody has a rat IgM or IgG2b isotype due to its adsorption with mouse Ig. It has weak cross-reactivity detectable by flow cytometry with some, but not all, hamster immunoglobulins.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BV480 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 436-nm and Em Max at 478-nm, BD Horizon BV480 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the BD Horizon BV510 (525/40-nm) filter set. BV480 has less spillover into the BV605 detector and, in general, is brighter than BV510.

Due to similar excitation and emission properties, BV480, BV510 and V500 cannot be used simultaneously.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
The polyclonal antibody was purified from antiserum by negative adsorption and affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BV480 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV480 were removed.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
- 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.

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment. Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation. The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions. More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349).
For Immunofluorescence Applications:
The use of a mounting reagent (eg, ProLong® Gold) is highly recommended to maximize the photostability of BV480. For confocal microscopy systems, a 440 nm laser is the optimal excitation source and the recommended emission filter is a 485/20 nm bandpass filter.
For epifluorescence microscopes with broad spectrum excitation sources, the recommended excitation and emission filters are 445/20 nm and 485/20 nm bandpass filters, respectively. For specific multicolor imaging applications, the exact filter configurations should be optimized by the end user.
