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 for 30 mins. at 25 °C.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control:
Thyroid (cytoplasmic staining pattern)

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
