Haptoglobin
Description:
Haptoglobin is a protein that is secreted into the blood by the liver. This protein binds free hemoglobin. The concentration of "free" hemoglobin (that is, outside red blood cells) in plasma is ordinarily very low. However, free hemoglobin is released when red blood cells hemolyze for any reason. Haptoglobin is measured as an indicator of the rate of red blood cell destruction (hemolysis).

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 1:500,000
Western Blot: 1:2000-1:10,000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1000-1:5000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

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