Technical Data
R1600-16
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) (FITC)
Description:
RSV is so named from the formation of syncytia, or multinucleated masses of fused cells. Two virally specified surface glycoproteins are prominent in RSV. The large glycoprotein is designated G and the other fusion protein is designated F. In addition, two distinct groups may be present in RSV, Group A and/or Group B.

Applications:
Suitable for use in FLISA and Direct or Indirect Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Direct Immunofluorescence: 1:10-1:50

Indirect Immunofluorescence: 1:250. Acetone fixation of the antigen is recommended.

Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 6 months at -20C. 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.
