Van Gogh Yellow
Intended Use:
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Summary and Explanation:
This antibody is a mixture of two monoclonal antibodies that reacts with immediate
early and early protein antigens in tissues infected with cytomegalovirus. This
antibody does not react with herpes virus or human papilloma virus. In the later stage
of infection, a cytoplasmic reaction may be observed.
Principle of Procedure:
Antigen detection in tissues and cells is a multi-step immunohistochemical process.
The initial step binds the primary antibody to its specific epitope. A secondary antibody
may be applied to bind the primary antibody, followed by an enzyme labeled polymer;
or an enzyme labeled polymer may be applied directly to bind the primary antibody.
The detection of the bound primary antibody is evidenced by an enzyme-mediated
colorimetric reaction.

Technical Note:
This antibody has been optimized for use with Biocare's MACH 4 Universal HRPPolymer Detection and ONCORE HRP Detection. Other Biocare polymer detection
kits may be used; however, users must validate incubation times and protocols for their
specific application. Use TBS for washing steps.
This product is provided for Research Use Only (RUO) and is not for use in diagnostic
procedures. Suitability for specific applications may vary and it is the responsibility of
the end user to determine the appropriate application for its use.
1. This antibody contains less than 0.1% sodium azide. Concentrations less than 0.1%
are not reportable hazardous materials according to U.S. 29 CFR 1910.1200, OSHA
Hazard communication and EC Directive 91/155/EC. Sodium azide (NaN3) used as a
preservative is toxic if ingested. Sodium azide may react with lead and copper
plumbing to form highly explosive metal azides. Upon disposal, flush with large
volumes of water to prevent azide build-up in plumbing. (Center for Disease Control,
1976, National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, 1976) (2)
2. Specimens, before and after fixation, and all materials exposed to them should be
handled as if capable of transmitting infection and disposed of with proper precautions.
Never pipette reagents by mouth and avoid contacting the skin and mucous membranes
with reagents and specimens. If reagents or specimens come in contact with sensitive
areas, wash with copious amounts of water. (3)
3. Microbial contamination of reagents may result in an increase in nonspecific
4. Incubation times or temperatures other than those specified may give erroneous
results. The user must validate any such change.
5. Do not use reagent after the expiration date printed on the vial.
