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
EMA / MUC1 antibody was raised against purified human Epithelial Membrane Antigen.
Recognizes Human surface glycoprotein of approximately 54kD. Positive against all current carcinoma cell lines.
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Immunohistochemistry: 1:25-1:50 (streptavidin: biotin). Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections can be stained successfully but require heat treatment to restore antigenicity, before staining. This involves exposure of tissue sections to boiling 0.01 M citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 25-30 minutes or for 2-3 minutes at elevated pressure.
EMA / MUC1 is a membrane-bound protein that is a member of the mucin family. Mucins are O-glycosylated proteins that play an essential role in forming protective mucous barriers on epithelial surfaces. These proteins also play a role in intracellular signaling. This protein is expressed on the apical surface of epithelial cells that line the mucosal surfaces of many different tissues including lung, breast stomach and pancreas.
