Rabbit Complement is designed for use as the complement reagent in a complement-dependent microlymphocytotoxicity assay. The reactivity of various lots of complement should be pre-tested by the laboratory using their specific methods and target cells. Large lot volumes reduce the time and cost of sampling new lots.
Rabbit complement is useful with assays that detect complement-fixing antibodies (antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity).
The low presence of heterophile antibody in conjunction with the high degree of sterility provides many uses for this product with the research lab. Currently, this product is being evaluated in experimental cell-depletion bone marrow research and is used in numerous microbial assays (including vaccine development and bacterialcidal assays).
Our complement is produced from New Zealand and California white rabbits. Complement from 3–4 week old baby rabbits features:
Minimal heterophile antibody activity
Low endotoxin activity
