For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.
Cluster of Differentiation 20 (CD20) is a polymerized horseradish peroxidase (polyHRP)-labeled anti-CD20 (R272) rabbit monoclonal antibody intended for laboratory use using frozen or formalin-fixed-paraffin-embedded tissues. CD20 also known as B-lymphocyte antigen, is a membrane polypeptide protein that is present in a majority of B-cells in peripheral blood and lymphoid tissues. The antibody recognizes Reed-Sternberg cells, predominant in Hodgkin’s disease, in a minority of cases. ihcDirect CD20 antibody may be used in multiple biomarker test panels to help differentiate B-cell lymphoma from other neoplasms. ihcDirect CD20 may also be used in conjunction with other markers such as CD45 to gain a broader understanding of leukocytes to help identify B-cell and T-cell lymphomas.
Both the 5ml and 10ml CD20 products are configured with the ready-to-use antibody only. Blocker, DAB, and wash buffer are not included in this product.
