This monoclonal antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (PBS) pH 7.2 - 7.4, 150 mM NaCl with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added.
Functional grade preclinical antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only In vitro 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.
To protect mouse colonies from infection by pathogens and to assure that experimental preclinical data is not affected by such pathogens, all of Leinco’s Purified Functional PLATINUM™ antibodies are tested and guaranteed to be negative for all pathogens in the IDEXX IMPACT I Mouse Profile.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade biosimilar 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.
Country of Origin
See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Applications and Recommended Usage ?
(Quality Tested by Leinco)
FC The suggested concentration for Alemtuzumab biosimilar antibody for staining cells in flow cytometry is ≤ 0.25 μg per 106 cells in a volume of 100 μl. Titration of the reagent is recommended for optimal performance for each application.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications.
This non-therapeutic antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab. Sarilumab binds to the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor. This product is for research use only.
IL-6R is ubiquitously expressed.
IL-6 and its signaling pathway play a part in immune response regulation, inflammation, and hematopoiesis.2 Sarilumab is a research-grade recombinant human monoclonal IL-6 receptor antagonist. It specifically binds to both the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor, thus inhibiting IL-6–mediated cis and trans-signaling in a dose-dependent manner.1 Therapeutic Sarilumab, also known by the trade name Kevzara, is currently used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis1, however, as of March 2020, The Feinstein Institute of Northwell Health publicized a study on "a human antibody that may prevent the activity" of IL-6 for the treatment of COVID-19.3 Anti-Human IL-6 (Sarilumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab making it ideal for research projects.
