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.
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".

Complement C5 antibody was raised against human C5
Human Complement C5. Tested in immunoelectrophoresis and double radial immunodiffusion against normal human serum, a single precipitin line is obtained which gives a reaction of full identity with the isolated immunogen. The product does not react with any other proteins component of human serum or plasma. Cross-reactivity The antiserum does not cross-react with any other component of human plasma. Inter-species cross- reactivity is a normal feature of antibodies to plasma proteins since they frequently share antigenic determinants. Cross-reactivity of this antiserum has not been tested in detail.
The fluorescent immunoconjugate to human C5 is used to determine the presence and pattern using immunohistochemical staining techniques. Determinations of individual C components can be very useful in defining the exact location of a defect. This immunoconjugate is not pre-diluted. The optimum working dilution of each conjugate should be established by titration before being used. Excess labeled antibody must be avoided because it may cause high unspecific background staining and interfere with the specific signal. Working dilutions are usually between 1:10 and 1:40. The applications listed have been tested for the unconjugated form of this product. Other forms have not been tested.
Lyophilized from PBS, pH 7.2
1 ml Sterile distilled water 1 ml
Store lyophilized at 4°C. Once reconstituted, aliquot and store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles. Store undiluted. Protect from light.
Activation of C5 by a C5 convertase initiates the spontaneous assembly of the late complement components, C5-C9, into the membrane attack complex. C5b has a transient binding site for C6. The C5b-C6 complex is the foundation upon which the lytic complex is assembled.Derived from proteolytic degradation of complement C5, C5 anaphylatoxin is a mediator of local inflammatory process.
