Pancreas Polypeptide is located in the pancreatic islets and in the exocrine pancreas. Useful for the diagnosis of tumors of pancreatic origin and of bronchial and rectal carcinoids.
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunocytochemistry and Immunohistochemistry.
Other applications not tested.
Immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin, no pretreatment necessary): 1:50-1:100
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Recommended Positive Control:
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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
