We recommend diluting our antibodies in the InVivoPure dilution buffer matching the pH that the antibody is supplied in. In the absence of InVivoPure dilution buffer sterile 1x PBS matching the exact pH of the antibody can be used. It is important to match the pH of the dilution buffer to the antibody to avoid aggregation.
When diluting we recommend using cold buffer and maintaining sterility by working in a biological safety cabinet and using sterile pipet tips, tubes, syringes, and buffers.
Diluting antibodies to working concentrations and storing at 4°C for more than a day should be avoided.
The optimal dose and frequency of administration for any given experiment and antibody can vary greatly based on many details including the experimental system (i.e. mouse strain, disease model, etc.), the duration of the experiment, the target tissue, the antigen concentration, and much more. For this reason, the optimal dose is best determined by reading through the product references associated with the antibody you’re interested in to find published data in an experimental system similar to yours. Using this as a starting point you can then optimize the dose and frequency of administration experimentally.
Each of our products has an up-to-date reference list available on the products webpage.
