Natural Der f 1 Molecular Reference Standard (MRS-NDF1)

Natural Der f 1 Molecular Reference Standard (MRS-NDF1)
Product Code: MRS-NDF1
Availability: In Stock
Price: $595.00
  The Natural Der f 1 MRS is intended to serve as reference standard to determine the Der f 1 content of allergen preparations from house dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae) by immunoassay
Allergen: NNatural Der f 1 (Dermatophagoides farinae allergen 1)
Source: D. farinae culture 
Mol. Wt: 24 kD

From spent mite culture by multi-step affinity chromatography. 

Composition: 10µg natural Der f 1, determined by Amino Acid Analysis, freeze dried in sealed glass vial.
SDS-PAGE: See inset. Silver-stained SDS-PAGE under non-reducing conditions shows a single band at 24 kD.
ELISA: Immunoreactive in Der f 1 specific ELISA. No trace contamination with Der f 2 was detected by ELISA.
Purity: >95% purity by in-solution LC-MS/MS after tryptic digest.

Prior to lyophilization, natural Der f 1 was adjusted to 50 mM volatile ammonium bicarbonate with 3% trehalose. 

Storage: Store at -20ºC

The Natural Der f 1 MRS is an InbioTM product.
Allergens are provided for research and commercial use in vitro:  not for human in vivo or therapeutic use.
  • Allow vial to reach room temperature before use
  • Tap vial gently to collect all material at the bottom
  • Using a sterile syringe reconstitute the MRS to desired concentration by injecting a suitable volume of a buffer of choice (e.g. PBS, pH 7.4 or 1% BSA/50% glycerol/PBS, pH 7.4). 
  • Mix by gently swirling the vial until content is completely dissolved. 
  • Adding 1ml of buffer will result in a Der f 1 concentration of 10,000ng/ml.
