Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to
worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting
immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.
TCR Screening Services
Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding.
Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".
Human (tested or 100% immunogen sequence identity)
IHC - Frozen
ELISA (1:1000 - 1:4000)
Specificity and Use
Collagen IV antibody was raised against human type IV collagen.
Reacts with conformational determinants on human type IV collagen as demonstrated by ELISA. May react with type IV collagen from other species. Exhibits < 10% cross-reactivity with collagen type I, II, III, V and VI. Has not been tested for reactivity with other ECM proteins (e. g., laminin, fibronectin).
Long term: -20°C; Short term: +4°C; Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

About Collagen IV
Type IV Collagen (ColIV or Col4) is a type of collagen found primarily in the basal lamina. The collagen IV C4 domain at the C-terminus is not removed in post-translational processing, and the fibers link head-to-head, rather than in parallel. Also, collagen IV lacks the regular glycine in every third residue necessary for the tight, collagen helix. This makes the overall arrangement more sloppy with kinks. These two features cause the collagen to form in a sheet, the form of the basal lamina.
