Technical Data
R1293-03
Red Blood Cells (RBC)
Description:
The high-affinity anti-RBC monoclonal antibody efficiently bind to Fc receptors on macrophages inducing anemia in vivo due to a rapid Fc receptor (FcyR)-mediated erythrophagocytosis of opsonised RBC in spleen and livers. The capacity of the antibody to interact with FcyR is responsible for its haemolytic activity.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Flow Cytometry and Functional Studies. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Flow Cytometry: 1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Positive Control: Mouse erythrocytes

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