CD CLUSTERED ANTIBODIES  

(anti-Human and others as indicated)

NOTE: 10% Discount on purchases of  3 or more any combination of CD antibodies. Please inquire for bulk or custom formulations (without preservative or carrier).

RDI Division of Fitzgerald Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (flow cytometry, neutralization, blotting, histochemistry, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below. All products are for in vitro research use only-not for use in or on humans or animals-not for use in diagnostics. Price/availability/specifications subject to change without notice.

Preservative Mertiolate (0.001%).

Storage and stability Monoclonal antibodies should be stored in the dark at 2-8°C. The reagent is stable until the expiry date stated on the vial label.

APPLICATION FOR AN INDIRECT IMMUNOFLUORESCENCE TECHNIQUE

Reagents

- FITC-conjugated goat anti-mouse immunoglobulin antiserum (M1204).

   Remove aggregates by centrifugation at 1000 x g for 10 minutes.

- Buffer: Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS), containing 0.2% Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA).

- PFA: Para-Formaldehyde 1%, pH 7.2, containing 0.2% BSA.

- microplate plates (96 wells, V bottom) or tubes.


Procedure

1 Fixate the cells with PFA 1% and wash them with buffer.

2 Prepare a mononuclear cell suspension with a concentration of 1 x 10 7 cells/ml in buffer.

3 Add 45 µl of cell suspension to the microplate wells or tubes.

4 Add 5 µl monoclonal antibody to the microplate wells or tubes and mix gently.

5 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8 C.

6 Add 100 µl buffer to the microplate wells or 2 ml buffer to the tubes and centrifuge at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

7 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells.

8 Add 200 µl buffer to the microplate wells or 2 ml buffer to the tubes and centrifuge at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

9 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells.

10 Add 50 µl FITC-conjugated goat anti-mouse immunoglobulin serum, solid phase adsorbed with human immunoglobulins,      diluted 1:80.

11 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8 C.

12 Repeat step 6-9.

13 Add 200 µl buffer.

14 The number of positive cells can be determined by flowcytometry analysis or by means of fluorescence microscopy.

NOTE: Care should be taken when drawing blood to avoid activation of platelets.


Platelets activation markers are weakly expressed on platelets prepared from directly fixed normal whole blood. The expression is maximal on thrombin (1 U/ml) stimulated washed platelets.

Application  in direct Immunofluorescence techniques

Method with ficoll purified cells


Reagents and materials

- FITC-conjugated monoclonal antibodies.

- Buffer: Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS), containing 0.2% Bovine Serum Albumine (BSA)

- PFA: Para-Formaldehyde 1%, pH 7.2, containing 0.2% BSA

- microplate plates (96 wells, V bottom) or tybes.


Procedure

1 Prepare a mononucleair cell suspension with a concentratation of 1 x 10 7 cells/ml.

2 Ad 40 µl of cell suspension to microplate wells or tubes

3. Add 10 µl of the antibody to the microplate wells or tubes and mix gently.

4 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8°C.

5 Add 150 µl buffer to the microplate wells or 2 ml buffer to the tubes and centrifuge at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

6 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells.

WHOLE  blood method

Due to sophisticated laser flowcytometry we are now able to distinguish populations of human lymphocytes, monocytes and granulocytes by their characteristics in different light scattering. By gating on the appropriate cell cluster (Fig.2) we can easily determine mononuclear cells, which have been immunofluorescently stained with monoclonal antibodies, and enumerate them.


Reagents and materials

- FITC-conjugated monoclonal antibodies.

- Lysing solution (NH 4Cl, pH 7.2).

- Buffer: Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS), containing 0.2 % Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA).

- PFA: Para-Formaldehyde 1%, pH 7.2, containing 0.2 % BSA.

- Tubes.


Procedure

1 Draw blood into a blood collection tube containing EDTA.

2 Deliver 100 µl (*) of well mixed whole blood to the bottom of the testtube.

3 Add 10 µl of the undiluted antibody to the bottom of the testtube, and mix gently.

4 Incubate for 30 minutes at 2-8°C or in an ice-water bath.

5 Mix the tubes and add 2 ml of lysing solution.

6 Incubate for 3-5 minutes at room temperature.

7 When lysing is completed, centrifuge the tubes at 500 x g for 5 minutes.

8 Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet, resuspend the cells in 1 ml buffer.

Place the tubes in the ice-water bath.

9 Analyse the samples within 8 hours.

If analysis within 8 hours is not possible centrifuge the tubes at 500 x g. Aspirate the supernatant from the cell pellet and resuspend the cells in 1 ml PFA 1%.

Note:Use our special negative control to determine background fluorescence produced due to Fc binding capacities by mononuclear cells.The concentration and F/P ratio of our control has been adjusted to our FITC-conjugated monoclonal antibodies. * This method was developed for blood samples with a normal white count. It may be necessary to adjust the quantity of blood for samples with very high or low white counts
