This antibody may be diluted to a titer of 1:10-1:50 in an ABC method. We suggest an incubation period of 30-60 minutes at room temperature. Enzymatic predigestion with proteolytic enzymes can increase the staining in paraffin embedded formalin fixed tissue sections. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the researcher.
The antibody reacts with a 82 kDa polypeptide specific to P. carinii. It does not cross-react with G. lamblia, T. gondii, T. cruzi, L. tropica, E. histolytica, C. albicans and P. falciparum.
Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. Store at 4ºC. DO NOT FREEZE.
