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".

Specificity and Use
Prokaryotic recombinant protein corresponding to 103 amino acid portion of C-terminal region of the human cytokeratin 5 molecule. LLLLL: Synthetic peptide of the extreme c-terminal of human keratin-14.
This antibody cocktail reacts with cytokeratin 5 intermediate filament protein as well as to 50kD cytokeratin protein designated cytokeratin 14. Basal cells of human epidermis express acidic cytokeratin 14 and basic cytokeratin 5. Cytokeratin 5 is a 58kD protein, which is closely related to cytokeratin 6. Cytokeratin 5 and 6 are expressed in basal cell epithelioma, basal cells of prostate, urothelium, vagina, squamous cell carcinomas of skin, tongue, epiglottis and rectal-anal region. Cytokeratin 5 can be useful in the distinction of mesotheliomas from most adenocarcinomas. Cytokeratin 14 belongs to the type A (acidic) subfamily of low MW cytokeratins and exists in combination with cytokeratin 15. This antibody can be useful to distinguish stratified epithelial cells from simple epithelial cells. Species cross-reactivity: This antibody is reactive against human.
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry (Fr) and Immunocytochemistry. Positive control: Skin.
PBS, pH 7.2, 0.08% sodium azide.
Do not freeze. Stable at 4º as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use. Freezing will result in a substantial loss of activity.
