This antibody is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use.
Ventana Medical Systems' (Ventana) CONFIRM anti-Kappa Rabbit Polyclonal Primary Antibody is directed against kappa immunoglobulin light chains. Staining for kappa light chains can be used to aid in the identification of cells of normal and abnormal B cell lineage. This antibody is intended for laboratory use to qualitatively stain B cells and plasma cells expressing kappa light chain immunoglobulins in sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue on a Ventana automated slide stainer. CONFIRM anti-Kappa Rabbit Polyclonal specifically binds to antigens located in the cell membrane and cytoplasmic regions of normal B cells and plasma cells.
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.
