Technical Data
HLA Class 1 Antigen A2,B17
This antibody has not been tested in methodologies other than Microcytotoxicity Test. Potential applications include Flow Cytometry, Cell Typing, Tissue Staining and Chimerism Studies.

Recommended Dilution:
Cytotoxicity: Add 0.9ml of 1% BSA in PBS to 100ul of10X working dilution.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Expected Results:
Cell death will occur in any test well where the HLA cell surface antigen is recognized by its matched anti-HLA antibody. Live lymphocytes indicate a negative reaction. Dead lymphocytes indicate a positive reaction.
Cell isolation difficulties, contamination of the lymphocyte preparation with red blood cells, monocytes, platelets or granulocytes, cell concentrations outside acceptable levels, bacterial contamination and/or change in pH of antisera may cause erroneous results.
