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".
Purified / Lyophilized / Biologically Active / Endotoxin Level: Less than 0.2 EU/µg protein (determined by LAL method).
Greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF- receptors is <=0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of >=2 x 10^6 units/mg.
Less than 0.1 ng/µg of protein (less than 1EU/µg).
Sterile filtered, lyophilized from 5 mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.4, 80 mM sodium chloride
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 5 mM Sodium Phosphate pH 7.4 to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
If lyophilized, can be stored for 1 month at room temperature, 6 months at 4°C, or through the expiration date at -20°C to -80°C. Once reconstituted per the supplied instructions, can be stored for 3 months at -20°C to -80°C, or for 1 week at 2°C to 8°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
FGF10 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This protein exhibits mitogenic activity for keratinizing epidermal cells, but essentially no activity for fibroblasts, which is similar to the biological activity of FGF7.
