    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    Reconstitute with water to a concentration of 0.1 – 1 mg/ml. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles. If reconstituting to a concentration less than 0.1 mg/ml add a carrier protein such as 0.1% BSA.

Customer reviews and Q&As

The lab let me know that this antibody (ab84265, detection antibody) can be used with ab9704 as capture antibody and ab9706 as protein standard.

Thank you for contacting us.

For ab73229, I was not able to receive any additional information for using the protein infunctional studies. As for ab9706, the procedure is as follows:

Procedure: (Previously reconstituted in water an...

Yes, either HSA or BSA will be fine to use in the reconstitution of ab9706. We would also recommend a quick spin in a microcentrifuge prior to opening the vial to make sure the protein gets down to the bottom of the vial, then using sterile H2O and add...
