Technical Data
Aflatoxin B1
Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring mycotoxin produced by two types of mold: Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aspergillus flavus is common and widespread in nature and is most often found when certain grains are grown under stressful conditions such as drought. At least 13 different types of aflatoxin are produced in nature with aflatoxin B1 considered as the most toxic. Aflatoxin B1 exposure may be a potential etiological agent in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, ELISA and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunocytochemistry: 1:50-1:100
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Cellular Localization: Nuclear

Positive Control: human HepG2 liver samples

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
