Human plasma proteins do not interfere with collagen binding. Collagen is located in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues. It is part of the interacting network of proteoglycans and proteins that provides a structural framework for both soft and calcified connective tissues. Type IV collagen forms a two-dimensional reticulum and is a major component of the basal lamina.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunofluorescence, and Immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
immunohistochemistry (Frozen): 1:10-1:50
immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:10-1:50
ELISA: 1:1,500-1:6,000
Immunofluorescence: 1:10-1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C for short-term only.Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and 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.
