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
TNF Alpha antibody was raised against recombinant human TNF.
Recombinant human TNFa produced in E. coli.
This IgG fraction antibody of anti-Human TNFa has been tested for use in neutralizations, ELISA, immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting. It recognizes the 17000 MW TNFa. Reactivity in other immunoassays is unknown.
0.02 M potassium phosphate, 0.15 M sodium chloride, pH 7.2.
Store vial at -20 C prior to opening. Dilute only prior to immediate use. For extended storage aliquot contents and freeze at -20 C or below. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing.
TNF Alpha is a multifunctional proinflammatory cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) superfamily. This cytokine is mainly secreted by macrophages. It can bind to, and thus functions through its receptors TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. This cytokine is involved in the regulation of a wide spectrum of biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, lipid metabolism, and coagulation.
Anti-Human TNFa Antibody - Immunohistochemistry. Immunohistochemistry using polyclonal TNFa antibody showing staining of formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human artery tissue sections. Sections were fixed in formaldehyde and subjected to heat mediated antigen retrieval in citrate buffer (pH 6.0). Slides were blocked for ten minutes with 1.5% serum. Primary antibody was diluted 1:100 and incubated with samples for 24 hours at 4°C. HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary antibody.
Anti-Human TNFa Antibody - Fluorescent Immunohistochemistry. Fluorescent immunohistochemistry showing staining of human colon by anti-TNF alpha (formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Samples were formaldehyde-fixed, then blocked in 10% serum for 2 hours at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1:100 and incubated with the sample for 2 hours at 20°C. Alexa Fluor 680 goat polyclonal secondary antibody was used diluted 1:5000.
Anti-Human TNF-a Antibody - Western Blot. Western blot of Anti-Human TNF-a (RABBIT) Antibody. Membrane blocked in 1% BSA-TBS-T 30 min RT, Rb-a-TNF alpha added at 1:1000 in 1% BSA-TBS-T o/n 4C, DyLight 649 Gt-a-Rb added at 1:20000 in MB-070 30 min RT.
