Biotin Mouse Anti-Pig IgG
Down Arrow Up Arrow

BD Pharmingen™
Pig (QC Testing)
Mouse BALB/c IgG1, κ
Purified pig IgG
ELISA (Routinely Tested)
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. The antibody was conjugated with biotin under optimum conditions, and unreacted biotin was removed. Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.


We recommend using the purified anti-pig IgG F007-1241 mAb (Cat. No. 552554) for capture in sandwich pig IgG ELISA in combination with biotinylated F007-1241 mAb (Cat. No. 552555) for detection.

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.

The F007-1241 antibody reacts with pig IgG, but not with pig IgM. The reactivity with individual pig IgG subclasses (IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3, IgG4) was not determined. It does not cross-react with mouse, rat, hamster, or rabbit immunoglobulins. The F007-1241 antibody does have some cross-reactivity with dog immunoglobulins.

Biotin is a ubiquitous co-factor (also known as Vitamin B7) that has many properties that make it extremely useful for molecular biology. Biotin has an extremely high affinity for the Avidin family of proteins (Kd = 10-15 M), making it the perfect tool to link two molecules. Biotin labeled antibodies can be combined with any number of Avidin-conjugated probes in order to customize an assay to a particular need. This is especially useful in the case of magnetic cell separation using streptavidin/magnetic bead conjugates, or in the case of flow cytometry using streptavidin/fluorophore conjugates.
