Regulatory Status Legend
IgG is an important component of the humoral immune response, helping to control infection. IgG is produced by plasma B-cells and may be found in extracellular fluids, such as blood, lymph, peritoneal, and cerebrospinal fluids. IgG monomers consist of two light and two heavy chains containing two antigen binding sites. There are four IgG subclasses found in human, mouse and rat species, which include IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4. The G18-145 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to the heavy chain of human immunoglobulin G subclasses: IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4. The G18-145 antibody has been reported not to react with the heavy chains of other human immunoglobulin isotypes.
Alexa Fluor® 700 is a far-red dye that can be excited with a 633–640-nm laser. This enables multicolor analysis in conjunction with APC or Alexa Fluor® 647, and APC-H7 or APC-Cy7 reagents.

Preparation and Storage
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
The antibody was conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 700 under optimum conditions, and unreacted Alexa Fluor® 700 was removed.
Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
- This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Alexa Fluor® 700 has an adsorption maximum of ~700nm and a peak fluorescence emission of ~720nm. Before staining cells with this reagent, please confirm that your flow cytometer is capable of exciting the fluorochrome and discriminating the resulting fluorescence.
