This BrdU antibody was raised against Bromodeoxyuridine conjugated to BSA and recognizes BrdU.


Purified IgG in PBS with 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.



BrdU (Bromodeoxyuridine) is a thymidine analogue, capable of being incorporated into DNA in place of thymidine during DNA synthesis. By pulse labelling with BrdU, the DNA synthesis in the cells can be analysed by detection with anti-BrdU antibodies. Antibodies against BrdU recognize BrdU in single-stranded DNA (produced by partial denaturation of double-stranded DNA), as well as free BrdU or BrdU coupled to a protein carrier.


Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.


This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
