Description

Product Description

Product is a mixture containing mineral oil, Arlacel A, and heat-killed Mycobacterium butyricum: Freund's Complete Adjuvant. Components are thoroughly mixed in controlled proportions and autoclaved prior to being vialed.

Application Notes

Freund′s Adjuvants may be used to produce water-in-oil emulsions of immunogens. It is prepared from non-metabolizable oils (parafin oil and mannide monooleate). Antigens in water-in-oil emulsions stimulate high and long-lasting antibody responses which can be attributed to the slow release of antigen. The mycobacteria in Complete Freund′s adjuvant attracts macrophages and other cells to the injection site which enhances the immune response. Thus, Complete Freund′s Adjuvant is used for initial injections.
