- Target Species
- Product Form
- Recombinant protein - lyophilised
- Reconstitute with 250ul sterile deionised water
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is recommended.
- Buffer Solution
- Citrate buffered saline
- Preservative Stabilisers
- None present.
- The specific activity was measured by normocythaemic mice and found to be 150,000 IU/mg
- >98.0% by HPLC analysis and SDS-PAGE
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- Total protein concentration 0.2mg/ml after reconstitution
- Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the protein. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
