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".
For the detection and quantification of endogenous levels of natural and/or recombinant Human FGF2 proteins.
LS-F24494 is a 96-well enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the Quantitative detection of Human FGF2 / Basic FGF in samples of Cell Culture Supernatants, Plasma, Serum and Tissue Homogenates. It is based upon a Sandwich assay principle and can be used to detect levels of FGF2 / Basic FGF as low as 4 picograms per milliliter.
All LSBio Custom kits have been predesigned and all necessary components, including antibodies and standards have been identified. Upon receiving a custom kit order, the kit will be assembled and quality control tested before being shipped out. Kit assembly and testing typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. In most cases the final kit is based on the Sandwich assay principle, with a few being Competitive EIA based. Specifications such as Range, Sensitivity, and Precision are defined upon completion. In the event that the custom kit cannot be successfully developed with 6 weeks of the order date, the customer will be notified and the order canceled at no cost.
Due to their limited shelf life, LSBio ELISA kits are not typically stocked as finished goods. Upon receipt of an order each kit is assembled and tested to ensure that it meets specifications before shipping. Minor changes may occur to the Range, Sensitivity, and Precision. In the event of a significant change the order would be confirmed with the customer before shipping. ELISA kit lot numbers reflect the date of final assembly and testing for each specific kit rather than a bulk manufactured lot. All kits are tested to confirm that they fall within their defined Inter- and Intra- assay coefficient of variation.

Human FGF-Basic or Fibroblast Growth Factor 2, also known commonly as HBGF-2 or Heparin-Binding Growth Factor 2, is a 288 amino acid cytokine protein encoded by the FGF2gene at locus 4q26 on chromosome 4. FGF family members bind heparin and possess broad mitogenic and angiogenic activities. This protein has been implicated in diverse biological processes, such as limb and nervous system development, would healing and tumor growth. The mRNA for this gene contains multiple polyadenylation sites, and is alternatively translated from non-AUG (CUG) and AUG initiation codons, resulting in five different isoforms with distinct properties. The CUG-initiated isoforms are localized in the nucleus and are responsible for the intracrine effect, whereas, the AUG-initiated form is mostly cytosolic and is responsible for the paracrine and autocrine effects of this FGF. The monomeric FGF-Basic protein interacts with many other proteins such as CSPG4 and FGFBP1 while also believed to be found in a complex with FGFBP1, FGF1 and FGF2. Expression patterns for this protein typically take place in granulosa and cumulus cells, but FGF2 is also found in hepatocellular carcinoma cells (not non-cancerous liver tissue). Several experiments were performed on FGF-Basic to determine its pH and temperature properties. It has been recently determined that FGF-Basic retains almost half of its activity after treatment at pH 2.0 for 3 hours at 20°C, while being inactivated after 3 minutes at 60°C or 1 minute at 80°C.
Store at 4°C for 6 months or at -20°C for one year. Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
FGF2 / Basic FGF is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members bind heparin and possess broad mitogenic and angiogenic activities.
