TechFAQ #5

What are the suggested dilution factors to be used for Jackson ImmunoResearch products?

The dilution factors suggested in the following table are presented in the form of a range because the optimal dilution is a function of many factors, such as antigen density, permeability, etc. The actual dilution used must be determined empirically. Dilutions outside these ranges may be required occasionally, and should be determined based on actual circumstances.
