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".
Determined by its ability to stimulate IL-8 production by human PBMC using a concentration range of 1.0-10.0 ng/ml. Please Note: Results may vary with PBMC donors.
Less than 0.1 ng/µg of protein (less than 1EU/µg).
Sterile filtered, lyophilized from 20 mM sodium phosphate, pH 7.5
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water 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 repeat freeze-thaw cycles.
The tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and TNF receptor (TNFR) gene superfamilies regulate numerous biological functions including cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival through regulating the activation of the transcription factor NF-kB and various mitogen-activated protein kinases. The glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor (GITR) is an emerging member of this family that is expressed on CD4+ CD25+ regulatory T cells and appears to have crucial immune regulation functions.
