ab276161 is a BSA and Azide Free antibody supplied in an unconjugated format and it is suitable for sandwich ELISAs to quantify Rat CTGF. The recommended pair for sandwich ELISA is:
Capture: ab276161, Rat CTGF Capture Antibody (unconjugated)
Detector: ab276162, Rat CTGF Detector Antibody (unconjugated)
The reference range value is 0.156 - 10 ng/ml.
The recommended antibody orientation is based on internal optimization for ELISA-based assays. Antibody orientation is assay dependent and needs to be optimized for each assay type. Please note that the range provided for this antibody is only an estimation based on the performance of the product using the recommended antibody pair. Performance of the antibody pair will depend on the specific characteristics of your assay. We guarantee the product works in sandwich ELISA, but we do not guarantee the sensitivity or dynamic range of the antibody in your assay.
Our carrier-free formats are supplied in a buffer free of BSA, sodium azide and glycerol for higher conjugation efficiency. The antibodies are provided at an approximate concentration of 1 mg/ml as measured by the protein A280 method. Use our conjugation kits for antibody conjugates that are ready-to-use in as little as 20 minutes with <1 minute hands-on-time and 100% antibody recovery: available for fluorescent dyes, HRP, biotin and gold.
This product is a recombinant monoclonal antibody, which offers several advantages including:
-High batch-to-batch consistency and reproducibility
-Improved sensitivity and specificity
-Long-term security of supply
