However, the ratio of peak intensity or peak area of the probes increased with increasing pH in the range of 7.0 to 9.0 for harmine, and decreased with increasing pH in the range of 2.5 to 7.5 for fluorescein isothiocyanate, which covers most food products' pH.

Serum samples were tested with a goat antihuman immunoglobulin (Ig) G or a goat antihuman IgM fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugate (Sigma Diagnostics, St.
One hundred microliters of a 25% solid solution of 0.5-, 1-, 2-, or 4-[micro]M-diameter fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-conjugated dextran beads were applied to the surface of the tissue, directly over the flex area.

When compared with the fluorescein isothiocyanate method, described previously (11), which quantifies Hcy and all amino acids through the reaction with amine groups, the IAF-based procedure allows a more selective detection of thiol-containing amino acids.
The monoclonal antisera used were: anti-HLA-B27 (clone HLA-ABC-m3) [13] obtained from Behringwerke in purified form as well as labeled with fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC); anti-HLA-B27 (clone GS145.2) [14], FITC labeled and mixed with phycoerythrin (PE)-labeled CD3 (a pan-T-lymphocyte marker) obtained as the HLA-B27 screening kit from Becton Dickinson; and anti-HLA-B27 (clone FD705) [15], FITC labeled (produced by One Lambda) purchased from EuroBiochem S.C.R.L.
