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
Recognizes the SC5b-9 complex of around 330 kD. Both the classical and alternative complement pathways result in the formation of the cytolysis inducing C5b-9 complex. This complex is composed of 190 kD C5b which is bound to cells via 71 kD C9. Sublytic assembly of C5b-9 on plasma membranes induces cell cycle activation and survival. The binding of C5b-9 to the 75 kD S-protein (or vitronectin) in the fluid phase prevents C5b-9 from assembling on the plasma membrane, deactivating it and forming the SC5b-9 complex. SC5b-9 is stable in vitro and is therefore a reliable indicator of terminal complement pathway activation. Removal of Sodium Azide is recommended prior to use in functional assays. Reported to work in western blotting applications.
