Hooke Control Kits™

To control for effects of adjuvant components in Hooke Emulsion Kits™

Protocol | Contents | Storage

Hooke Control Kits™ are identical to the corresponding Hooke Emulsion Kits™, except that they contain no specific antigens.

Supplied in pre-filled syringes, ready to use.

Hooke Control Kits™ enable distinction between responses induced by adjuvant vs. those induced by a specific antigen. This distinction is important in the study of immune response mechanisms.

Our emulsions are carefully made and pre-filled into syringes, ready to use, to reduce time needed to set up experiments.

Pre-filled syringes are prepared under aseptic conditions and delivered in sterilized plastic bags for easy disinfection before introduction into your mouse facility.

The adjuvant components of Hooke Emulsion Kits™ typically induce immune responses including skin inflammation, enlargement of spleen, and increase in cytokine production. These effects result from the adjuvant component of the kit, not the specific antigen component.

Hooke Control Kits™ are intended as controls for adjuvant-induced responses.

Hooke Control Kit™ selection guide

Choose the Hooke Control Kit™ that corresponds to the Hooke Emulsion Kit™ to be used. Each Hooke Control Kit™ contains no specific antigen, but is otherwise identical to the associated Hooke Emulsion Kit™.
