Technical Data
M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunoblot and Immunoelectron microscopy. Also suitable for use in Phage Display (immunoassays for the identification of recombinant antigen- or antibody-phages). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:500
Phage Display: Detection limit: 10e7 phage particles
Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile 40-50% glycerol and store at -20°C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20°C. 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.
