Technical Data
B Cells (FITC)
Studies on normal lymphocytes, leukemic cells and cell lines indicate it is a marker for a limited segment of the B cell maturation pathway(2,3). This glycoprotein is expressed in varying degrees on normal circulating B-cells, chronic B-cell leukemia (B-CLL), prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL) and other B cell neoplasias (41)2. It labels the same population as CD22 antibodies but reacts with a different antigen(5). Cell reactivity: Stains peripheral blood B lymphocytes and tonsil B lymphocytes. (1).

This antibody can be used for the differentiation of PLL from B-CLL. It is also useful in confirmation of the diagnosis of other disorders such as HCL, HCL-V and SLVL. Useful for the detection of residual disease in patients undergoing treatment for these disorders.

Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: Neat. Use 10ul per 100ul of whole blood, or 1x10e6 peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in 100ul buffer.
Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 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.
