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
TACSTD1 / EPCAM antibody was raised against mCF-7 human breast carcinoma cell line.
Recognizes Epithelial Specific Antigen. Reacts with a transmembrane glycoprotein present on most normal and malignant epithelia. Mesothelial cells derived tumors are rarely positive. Species cross-reactivity: Human.
Immunohistology (Formalin/paraffin): (Use Ab at 1:10 for 30 min at RT) Staining of formalin/paraffin tissues requires digestion of tissue sections with pepsin at 1 mg/ml Tris-HCl, pH 2.0 for 15 min at RT or 10 min at 37C). Positive control: Breast carcinoma.
0.09% sodium azide.
Long term: Add glycerol (40-50%) -20°C; Short term: +4°C.
May act as a physical homophilic interaction molecule between intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) and intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) at the mucosal epithelium for providing immunological barrier as a first line of defense against mucosal infection. Plays a role in embryonic stem cells proliferation and differentiation. Up-regulates the expression of FABP5, MYC and cyclins A and E.
