Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab84998 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Biological activity
    One unit of mouse Interferon beta is the amount of Interferon beta which protects 50% of the indicator cell population from viral destruction. One unit of ab84998 Interferon beta approximates the bioactivity contained in one unit of Mouse Interferon beta standard prepared by NIH.

Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. After reconstitution store at -20ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.

    Preservative: None
    Constituents: 0.1% Gelatin, PBS, 100µg Mouse albumin

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

  • Reconstitution
    Reconstitute the vial by injection of 1ml distilled or deionized water (Caution the vial is under vacuum). Store stock solution after reconstitution at -20°C. Note: Mouse Interferon beta is highly labile when agitated. Repeated freeze and thaw cycles and prolonged exposure to light will cause loss of activity. Under recommended storage conditions, product is stable for one year.

Thank you for your inquiry.

I checked with the supplying lab and they only check the bioactivity of the beta interferon by determination of the amount that protects 50% of the indicator cell population from viral destruction.
