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 / Endotoxin Level: Less than 1.0 EU/µg protein (determined by LAL method).
IL6 / Interleukin 6
Greater than 97% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of IL-6-dependent murine 7TD1 cells is less than 0.02 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5 × 107 IU/mg.
Tris buffer, 50% glycerol.
Reconstitute in sterile distilled water to 0.1-1 mg/ml.
Long term: -80°C; Short term: -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Required for the generation of T(H)17 cells. Also acts as a myokine.
