  1. 1This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections. Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 is recommended for this purpose. N.B. The epitope recognised by clone 514H12 is sensitive to peroxide. It is therefore recommended that any peroxidase-blocking steps be performed after incubation with this antibody.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
