FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunohistochemical staining of frozen tissue3 and formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue4 and immunofluorescent staining2,3.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤5 µl per million cells or 5 µl per 100 µl of whole blood. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Brilliant Violet 650™ excites at 405 nm and emits at 645 nm. The bandpass filter 660/20 nm is recommended for detection, although filter optimization may be required depending on other fluorophores used. Be sure to verify that your cytometer configuration and software setup are appropriate for detecting this channel. Refer to your instrument manual or manufacturer for support.

C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow cells

C57BL/6 mouse bone marrow cells were stained with CD19 FITC and CD138 (clone 281-2) Brilliant Violet 650™ (top) or rat IgG2a, κ Brilliant Violet 650™ isotype control (bottom). Data shown is from gated on lymphoid cell population.


CD138, a member of the syndecan protein family, is a type I integral membrane heparin sulfate proteoglycan also known as Syndecan-1. Syndecan-1 participates in cell proliferation, cell migration, and cell matrix adhesion via interaction with collagen, fibronectin, and other soluble molecules (such as FGF-basic). It is expressed on normal and malignant plasma cells, pre-B cells, mesenchymal cells, epithelial cells, and endothelial cells.

Other Names: Syndecan-1
Structure: Transmembrane heparan sulfate proteoglycan; member of the syndecan proteoglycan family, 100-200 kD
Function: Cell adhesion, cell motility, cell migration, cell proliferation
