Micro - Ouchterlony Plates
Each MP immunodiffusion plate contains 8 ouchterlony patterns consisting of a center well and 6 outer wells. The MP ouchterlony plate is designed for specific but low affinity antisera. Such antisera require properly spaced wells and polyethylene glycol in the agarose for optimal immuno-precipitation. The plates are prepared especially for the MP polyclonal antisera to human IgG subclasses. When using these antisera for typing immunoglobulin subclasses in patients with myeloma, the sera must be diluted so that the background IgG does not produce visible precipitation.

|Product Overview||The MP ouchterlony plate is designed for specific but low affinity antisera. Such antisera require properly spaced wells and olyethylene glycol in the agarose for optimal immuno -precipitation.|
|Storage and Handling||The plates have a shelf life of one year when stored at 2-8°C sealed in the original packet. Once opened the plate should be used as quickly as possible. If only some of the wells are used; a divider should be used or the used gel section removed to prevent spurious precipitin lines from encroaching upon adjacent ouchterlony patterns. The plates can be stored right side up at 2-8°C for up to two weeks if care is taken to avoid microbial contamination. Do Not Freeze.|
|Typical Working Concentration||Typically dilutions of 1:600 to 1:16,000 are required.|
