The antibody may be used in ELISA and Immuno-affinity-chromatography (IAC). The titer of the antibody is approximately 100,000 (the titer is defined as the dilution giving 50 % binding).
Precautions of storage should be taken for longer periods. Problems of longterm stability may occur with highly diluted solutions. No other preservative agent has been added to the present formulation. For long storage purposes in solution the addition of sodium azide to 0.02 % is advised with the appropriate precautions of use.
Alkylphenols are used as starting material for the production of surface active substances, detergents, pesticides, paints, textile and paper. It is released during production and use of these products. Alkylphenols are recognized as endocrine disruptors, in particular estrogenic endocrine disruptors. A highly comparable compound is octylphenol.
