Store IRDye secondary antibody at 4° C prior to restoration. For extended storage aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. IRDye conjugated antibdoy is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
IRDye secondary antibody conjugates to Mouse IgG is widely used to detect proteins. However, many common visible fluorophores often result in considerable background fluorescence in the visible range. Visible fluorophores are rarely used for membrane-based protein detection because of this high background. IRDye® 800 and IRDye® 700DX antibody and reagent conjugates are specifically designed for protein detection methods that use longer-wavelength, near-infrared (IR) fluorophores to visualize proteins in western blotting and other applications. Very low background fluorescence in the IR range provides for a much higher signal-to-noise ratio than visible fluorophores. Detection levels in the picogram range on Western blots rival the sensitivity of chemiluminescence on film. IRDye® 800 conjugates are optimized for the Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System developed by LI-COR. IRDye® 800 conjugates are also suitable for immunofluorescence microscopy using commercially available excitation/emission filters in the 780nm/820nm range. Dual simultaneous labeling in western blots or microscopy is achieved when IRDye® 800 conjugates are used in conjunction with IRDye® 700DX or DyLight™680 conjugates. IRDye® 800 and IRDye® 700DX conjugates provide an ultra-sensitive and convenient alternative to standard chemiluminescent protein detection methods, as well as a valuable tool for multicolor imaging.
IRDye secondary antibody was prepared from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity chromatography using Mouse IgG coupled to agarose beads followed by solid phase adsorption(s) to remove any unwanted reactivities. Assay by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against anti-Goat Serum, Mouse IgG and Mouse Serum. No reaction was observed against Bovine, Chicken, Goat, Guinea Pig, Hamster, Horse, Human, Rabbit, Rat and Sheep Serum Proteins.
