Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.
For Research Use only
For reconstitution add 200 μL H2O, then aliquot and store at -20 °C until use.
Affinity purified antibodies are less robust than antisera, since protease inhibitors are also removed during purification. Hence, storage at 4 °C for prolonged periods (i.e. several weeks), is not recommended.
Unlabeled lyophilized antibodies are stable in this form without loss of quality at ambient temperatures for several weeks or even months. They can be stored at 4°C for several years. Lyophilized antibodies must not be stored in the freezer, they may be destroyed!
