Technical Data
C0115-08V
Calcitonin (CALC1, CALCA, CGRP, CGRP1, CGRP-I, CT, KC)
Description:
Calcitonin is found in C cells of normal and hyperplastic thyroid. This antibody can be used to detect the presence of calcitonin in these tissues.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:100-1:200 for 1 hr. at RT
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
C cells of thyroid, cytoplasmic staining pattern.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 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.
