Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline containing 10% (v/v) 0.5 M carbonate buffer, pH 9.5, and 15 mM sodium azide.


Avidin-FITC from egg white can be used for immunohistochemistry in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections at a concentration of 20-40 μg/mL. The product can also be used for indirect immunofluorescence (1:200).

To determine the amount of labeled polyclonal IgG present in spores in an IgG prep. A known concentration of FITC avidin from egg white and biotin-IgG avidin was used in excess at 300nm.

General description

Avidin is homotetrameric protein (68 kDa) that is obtained from egg whites. This egg protein binds strongly to biotin. Thus, avidin-biotin association has been utilized in immunoassays to detect the localization of antigens in tissues. The use of avidin-biotin immunoassay enhances the sensitivity of the technique and facilitates the detection of antigens in low quantities.
