Product Details

Target Species
Product Form
Purified acetylated LDL from human serum, Dil labelled - liquid
Purified LDL is acetylated and then labelled with the fluorescent probe Dil (1,1'-dioctadecyl-3,3,3',3'-tetramethylindo-carbocyanine perchlorate). The resultant product is exhaustively dialyzed against 0.15 M NaCl, 0.05 M Tris, pH 7.4, 0.3 mM EDTA, sterilized by filtration and then aseptically packaged.
Preservative Stabilisers
None present.
Approx. Protein Concentrations
Total protein concentration 0.2 mg/ml
