This antibody is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.
Ventana® Medical Systems' (Ventana) FITC anti-C3 (complement 3) Primary Antibody is a goat derived polyclonal antibody labeled with fluorescein and specifically directed against human C3. This reagent should be used in conjunction with a panel of antibodies to aid in the identification of complement 3 in C3 target tissue (e.g., in the diagnosis of renal or dermal pathologies). FITC anti-C3 is intended for laboratory use to qualitatively stain sections of frozen tissue on a Ventana automated slide stainer.
The clinical interpretation of any staining, or the absence of staining, must be complemented by morphological studies and evaluation of proper controls. Evaluation must be made by a qualified pathologist within the context of the patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic tests.
