This monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added. Due to inherent biochemical properties of antibodies, certain products may be prone to precipitation over time. Precipitation may be removed by aseptic centrifugation and/or filtration.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade preclinical antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
FC The suggested concentration for this UCHT-2 antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 1.0 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl or 100μl of whole blood. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Additional Reported Applications For Relevant Conjugates ?
For specific conjugates of this clone, review literature for suggested application details.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Mouse Anti-Human CD5 (Clone UCHT-2) recognizes Human CD5. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype. Anti-Human CD5 recognizes a human T-lymphocyte surface membrane antigen (Mr 67 kDa).
The CD5 antigen is present on approximately 70% of normal peripheral blood lymphocytes and >90% of all T-lymphocytes. T-lymphocytes in the thymus stain weakly while peripheral T-cells stain strongly. Monocytes, granulocytes and NK cells are not stained.1 Anti-CD5 also reacts with a distinct subset of normal B-lymphocytes, occasional cells in B-lymphocyte areas of spleen and lymph node, and most Ig+ B-chronic lymphoblastic leukemia (CLL) cells. The CD5 antigen has also been shown to be present on some lymphomas.
Anti-Human CD5 can be used in research to study B-lymphocyte subsets or characterization of leukemias and lymphomas.
