Regulatory Status Legend
The BB23-8E6-8C8 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the 25-kDa ε chain of the T-cell receptor-associated CD3 complex. It recognizes all CD4+ and most CD8+ peripheral blood T lymphocytes, most thymocytes and phytohemagglutinin-stimulated blasts, and subsets of spleen and Peyer's patch lymphocytes. BB23-8E6-8C8 is a immunoglobulin isotype switch variant of the BB23-8E6 clone. This isotype-switch variant induces a proliferative response of peripheral blood mononuclear cells. The epitope recognized by BB23-8E6 mAb was designated CD3a by the Second International Swine CD Workshop.
FITC, fluorescein isothiocyanate, is a fluorochrome with a molecular weight of 389 Da. FITC is sensitive to pH changes and photobleaching. Due to nearly identical excitation and emission properties but different spillover characteristics, FITC and Alexa Fluor® 488 cannot be used simultaneously. FITC is relatively dim and should be reserved for highly expressed markers whenever possible.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated with FITC under optimum conditions, and unreacted FITC was removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Please refer to www.bdbiosciences.com/pharmingen/protocols for technical protocols.
- 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.
