Frozen Sections (see application references)
Immunofluorescence (see comments)
Paraffin Sections (see comments, heat pre-treatment required)
Radial Immunodiffusion (use undiluted)
Toxicity: Standard Handling (A)
In PBS, pH 7.2.
Following intial thaw, aliquot and freeze (-20°C).
By immunodiffusion the antibody is monospecific for C5b-9 complex in purified form or present in cobra venom factor activated human serum. There is no reactivity vs. non-activated normal human serum or plasma. Also reported to work for immunofluorescence. This antibody has been shown to work for formalin-fixed paraffin sections; use of citrate buffer and a pressure cooker for 1 min is required for antigen retrieval. Antibody should be titrated for optimal results in individual systems.
