New Optibodies™ – Launched in 2017

Nordic Biosite is very proud of its premium series of antibodies, Optibodies™, which offer a great staining performance. Today we have an increasing number of different rabbit monoclonal Optibodies, and more to come! 

We would like to highlight four very interesting rabbit monoclonal Optibodies™; CD4 (BSR4), CD8 (BSR5), CD79a (BSR20), and CK20 (BSR7), including two mouse monoclonal Optibodies™; LEF1 (BS175 & BS190) and CD2 (BS60).

CD4 (BSR4) stained tonsil and liver tissues
CD8 (BSR5) stained tonsil and appendix tissues
CD79a (BSR20) stained tonsil and colon tissues
CK20 (BSR11) stained tonsil and colon carcinoma tissues

Our BSR20 clone stains B-cells and B-cell neoplasia intensively with a superior signal to noise ratio. We also launched CD20 rabbit monoclonal antibody (BSR7) colon carcinoma and urinary tract carcinoma diagnostic. Test our CD4, CD8, CD79a, and CK20 rabbit monoclonal antibodies, as well as our other antibodies from our Optibodies™ portfolio!
We also have excellent marker for B-lymphocytes. CD79a is commonly used with CD20 for detection of B-cell neoplasms. CD4 and CD8 are markers of T-lymphocytes, and these are useful for classification of lymphocytes in inflammation and lymphomas. Our CD4 (BSR4) clone offers intensive signal with specific performance. 

LEF1 (BS175&BS190) stained tonsil and CLL tissues
CD2 (BS60) stained tonsil and appendix tissues

Lymphoid Enhancing Factor 1 (LEF1) is a protein, which is a member of the TCF/LEF family. LEF1 is a transcription factor and it is expressed normally in T-lymphocytes, as well as pro-B-lymphocytes with nuclear staining pattern. Our LEF1 optibody is useful for lymphoma diagnostic, especially for detection of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic lymphoma. CD2 (BS60) has an exceptional performance and signal intensity for lymphoma diagnostic.
