Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons or Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) are contain multiple benzene rings. They are generally found as components of fuels, oils and greases.
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Optimal dilutions 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.
