Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IH
With a direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using this antibody, IC50 values for microcystin-LR of 0.06ug/l have been obtained. The provisional guideline value proposed by the WHO is 1ug/l for drinking water. The detection limit for microcystin-LR is 0.006ug/l. All microcystin variants containing an arginine at position 4 show similar IC50 values and detection limits, whereas other microcystins, such as microcystin-LA are not recognized. The affinity constant for this product was determined to be at least 7 x 10e10 l/mol.
The antibody was tested for its robustness against interferences (humic acids, pH, salt content, surfactants or organic solvents) and was found to be very stable. Microcystin-LR spiked water samples in the concentration range between 0.01 and 0.1ug/l were measured and a mean recovery of 99.9 ± 16.4% was found. The antibody is well suited for the sensitive analysis of microcystins in drinking as well as surface water.
Catalog #M3889-25
ApplicationsSuitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsELISA: 1:10,000-1:100,000
Immunohistochemistry: Paraffin sections
Concentrations can be measured in the range of ~0.006ug/L - 0.3ug/L.. The ELISA sensitivity is about 1000 times higher compared to UV detection.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
