Technical Data
M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous (Biotin)
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Phage Display. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:5000-1:10000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. 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.
