M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous (FITC)
Description:
Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA 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. The detection limit for M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous is 10e7 phage particles.
Optimal dilution to be determined by the researcher.

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