The antibody reacts with human native and recombinant TNF-alpha as assessed by ELISA. The antibody inhibits the biological activity of human native and recombinant TNF-alpha as determined with L929 cells in a cytotoxicity assay. The antibody cross reacts with rhesus and cynomolgus natural TNF-alpha and lacks crossreactivity with human lymphotoxin.

For immunohistology, flow cytometry and Western blotting dilutions to be used depend on detection system applied. It is recommended that users test the reagent and determine their own optimal dilutions. The typical starting working dilution is 1:10. For neutralization of biological activity in vitro dilutions have to be made according to the amount of TNF-alpha to be inactivated. Before use in biological assays, the product must be filter sterilized and depending on the concentration to be used dialyzed against culture medium to remove the sodium azide added. Please inquire for availability of azide free solutions.
