Highlighted Antibody - EpCAM (Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule) Clone BS14



EpCAM (Epithelial Cell Adhesion Molecule) is expressed on the basolateral membrane of cells by the majority of epithelial tissues. EpCAM expression is a marker of early malignancy, with expression being increased in tumor cells, and de novo expression being seen in dysplastic squamous epithelium.

 

This cell surface, glycosylated 40kD protein is highly expressed in bone marrow, colon, lung, and most normal epithelial cells and is expressed on carcinomas of gastrointestinal origin.

 

 

KEY ADVANTAGES OF CLONE BS14 (EpCAM ANTIBODY):

 

• Clone BS14 clone provides robust and optimal performance on multiple IHC platforms, using standard high pH HIER buffer.

 

• Clone BS14 offers a more flexible dilution range so the dilution can be adjusted for the specific tissue being stained.

 

• This antibody truly provides optimal staining and as with all our antibodies we provide a 100% guarantee, so trying it really is risk free.
