The antibody is shipped at ambient temperature and may be stored at +4°C. For prolonged storage prepare appropriate aliquots and store at -20°C. Repeated thawing and freezing should be avoided. Working dilutions should be stored at +4°C, not refrozen, and preferably used the same day. An aliquot should be thawed slowly at ambient temperature and centrifuged to remove precipitate. This may result in a thin lipid layer floating on top and/or a visible precipitate. Removal of either will not affect the performance or the concentration of the product.

This product is intended FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY, and FOR TESTS IN VITRO, not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures involving humans or animals.
