Technical Data
M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous (Biotin)
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Phage Display
(immunoassays for the identification of recombinant antigen- or antibody-phages; detection limit: 10e7 phage particles) Other applications not tested..

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1ug/ml (dilution 1:500-1:1000)
Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 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
