Store at 4°C in the dark. Under these conditions, the antibodies should have a shelf life of at least 12 months (provided they remain sterile). For longer storage periods, dilute the antibodies with sterile glycerol and store at -20°C. Do not freeze these antibodies unless you want to store them for longer periods of time.
Chickens were immunized with purified, non-denatured human IgG (containing both heavy and light chains). Eggs were collected from hyperimmunized hens and the IgY fraction purified from the yolks. Anti-human IgG’s were affinity-purified over a column conjugated with purified human IgG (containing both heavy and light chains).
Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) (pH 7.2), sodium azide (0.02%, w/v) (as an anti-microbial agent).
There is no detectable cross-reactivity with goat, mouse or rabbit IgG
Antibodies were tested for specificity using double-immunodiffusion in agarose.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
