Technical Data
M13, fd, F1 Bacteriophages, Filamentous
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunoblot and Phage Display (immunoassays for the identification of recombinant antigen- or antibody-phages) (Detection limit: 10e6 phage particles).

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:10

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