Procedure Guide for NB 300-157 Polyclonal Anti-Somatostatin Receptor II

Immunofluorescence Procedure

1. Plate cells on Lab-TekII chamber slides (Nalge Nunc).
2. Grow cells to about 75% confluence.
3. Rinse cells with PBS, at room temperature (RT).
4. Fix in 2% formaldehyde/PBS for 20 minutes at RT.
5. Rinse the cells 3x with TBS (pH 7.2).
6. Block the non-specific sites with 0.5% normal goat serum in TBS + 0.1% Triton X 100 (TBS-TX).
