IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
This product detects a band of approximately 9kDa when using recombinant NT-proBNP.
This product detects the amino-terminal fragment of pro-brain natriuretic peptide (amino acids 13-20), also known as NT-proBNP, a cleavage product during the proteolytic activation of BNP. NT-proBNP is a secreted protein which is a member of the natriuretic peptide family, which is predominantly secreted from the cardiac ventricles in response to volume and pressure overload.
NT-proBNP is more stable than BNP in serum, and has become a useful biomarker of heart failure.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
