CTGF Monoclonal Antibodies [2C11]
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Epigen they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
CTGF. Monoclonal antibodies ensure a highly specific binding to a certain epitope of the antigen and are much more LOT-to-LOT consistent than polyclonal antibodies.
CTGF MAb [2C11] should not be exposed to cycles of freezing and thawing as they may denaturate the peptide chains/bonds in the antibodies and reduce/change the activity of the antibody. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to collect its content on the bottom.
Monoclonals of this antigen are available in different clones. Each murine monoclonal anibody has his own affinity specific for the clone. Mouse monoclonal antibodies are purified protein A or G and can be conjugated to FITC for flow cytometry or FACS and can be of different isotypes.
For short term storage the CTGF Monoclonal Antibody [2C11] can be kept refrigerated at +4 degrees Celsius. For long term storage keep frozen at -20 degrees Celsius. Be sure to refer to the technical sheet for any additional specifications and requirements for proper storing of the antibodies.
