In September of 2016, Miltenyi Biotec started to offer antibodies in a concentrated format of 2 μL of antibody per test*. Due to an increasing demand for smaller pipetting volumes of antibodies, for multicolor panels with many antibodies, we are glad to introduce the change from our current 10 μL antibody/test to a 2 μL antibody/test format. The change will be accompanied by a change from 5 mL amber glass bottles to 2 mL polypropylene vials. All new vials will be marked with color-coded labels for easy identification and organization of your flow reagent inventory.
From September 2016 onwards, all newly released products are available in this new format. All existing products available in the 10 μL antibody/test format will continue to be offered for sale until inventories are depleted. Upon new inventory manufacture, you will begin receiving products provided in the more concentrated, 2 μL antibody/test format. Be sure to check the up-to-date datasheet to confirm the correct volume per test.
*One test corresponds to labeling of up to 106 cells in a total volume of 100 μL.
