  • RelevanceFITC (fluorescein isothiocyanate) is a fluorochrome dye that absorbs ultraviolet or blue light causing molecules to become excited and emit a visible yellow-green light. This emission ceases upon removal of the light causing the excitation. Fluorochrome labeling provides rapid, accurate localization of antigen-antibody interaction when one of the reactants is part of a cell, tissue or other biological structure. FITC is a commonly used marker for antibodies in immunofluorescent techniques since the conjugation of FITC to proteins is relatively easy and does not, in general, destroy the biological activity of the labeled protein. FITC is widely used as a hapten to label different proteins.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I have been in contact with the lab and while we have not tested this clone directly with acetylated FITC, the antibody was tested with carboxy-fluorescein diacetate succinimydil ester (CFSE) in immunohistochem...

Thank you for contacting Abcam. I am replying to your question on behalf of my colleague Ada. The antibodies that have FITC conjugated to them do not need the anti-FITC antibody ab112511, if you simply want to detect FITC fluorescence by flow cytometry...
