Technical Data
Calcitonin (CALC1, CALCA, CGRP, CGRP1, CGRP-I, CT, KC)
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.

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.
