Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunocytochemistry and Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Using a conjugate Choline-GA-PC, antibody specificity was performed with an ELISA test by competion experiments with the following compounds.
Compound Crossreactivity ratio (a)
Phosphatidylcholine (free) >1:10,000
Choline (free) >1:10,000
Acetylcholine (free) >1:10,000
(a): Choline-PC concentration/unconjugated or conjugated analogs concentration at half displacement.
Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20°C. Stable for 12 months after receipt at -20°C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
