Store at 2-7 °C. Do not freeze!
Binds all strains of BVDV type 1 and type 2 tested thus far. Suitable for use in indirect immunofluorescence, ELISA, and immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissues. This monoclonal antibody is produced as mouse ascites fluid, clarified by centrifugation, and filtered through a 0.2 micrometer filter. The concentration is 1.0 mg/ml in phosphate-buffered saline, containing 4 mg/ml BSA, preserved with sodium azide.
Note: BVDV-1 genotypes usually produce only mild diarrhea in immunocompetent cattle, while BVDV-2 genotypes can produce thrombocytopenia, hemorrhages, and acute fatal disease. The viruses of either genotype may exist as one of two biotypes, cytopathic or noncytopathic.
For sale and use in the United States only.
