Technical Data
R1600-12A
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) (HRP)
Description:
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is the most important cause of pneumonia and bronchiolitis in infants and small children(1,2). Like the other respiratory viruses, RSV causes a range of respiratory illness, the most common being a cold with profuse rhinorrhea. RSV infections appear in large outbreaks every winter. RSV is very contagious, and most children have experienced infection by 2 years of age. Immunity to RSV does not prevent re-infections. Re-infections tend to be less severe than primary infections and occur throughout life. RSV also can be an unusual cause of significant respiratory illness in normal and elderly adults.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: ~1:10,000
Immunocytochemistry: 1:20-1:200
Western Blot: 1:20-1:200
Immunofluorescence: 1:480
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Fusion Inhibition Titer:
>1:256

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 at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Labeled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Sodium azide is a potent inhibitor of peroxidase and should not be added to HRP conjugates. HRP conjugates are sensitive to light.
