  1. 1This product requires antigen retrieval using heat treatment prior to staining of paraffin sections.Sodium citrate buffer pH 6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
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 systems with appropriate negative/positive controls.
Western Blotting
Under reducing conditions, MCA2194 detects a specific band of 50-56 kDa that represents the nucleocapsid.

MCA2194 detects specific bands at 56 and 46 kDa in reducing gels with CCV as antigen.
