|PDF datasheet||View Datasheet|
|Manufacturer||Acris Antibodies GmbH|
|Material safety datasheet||MSDS for Proteins (de)|
|Purity||> 95 % Proprietary chromatographic techniques, > 95.0 % as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
|Background||Granulocyte/Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factors are cytokines that act in hematopoiesis by controlling the production, differentiation, and function of 2 related white cell populations of the blood, the granulocytes and the monocytes-macrophages. CSF-1 induces cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage. It plays a role in immunological defenses, bone metabolism, lipoproteins clearance, fertility and pregnancy.|
|Storage||Stable at room temperature for one month, should be stored desiccated below -20 °C. Upon reconstitution MCSF should be stored at 2 - 8 °C for one week and for future use below -20 °C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1 % HSA or BSA). Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf life: one year from despatch.
