Mouse anti Pig SWC8, clone MIL3, recognizes the porcine SWC8 cell surface antigen, an antigen that as yet has no identified human homolog. SWC8 is expressed by granulocytes, B cells, a subset of T cells and by some non-haematopoietic cells. Monocytes however do not express SWC8.

Clone MIL3 has been used in two colour flow cytometry with Mouse anti Porcine CD14 antibody, clone MIL2 (MCA1218GA) to distinguish between monocytes and granulocytes (Haverson et al. 1994).
