Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
  1. 1Fixation with 10% formalin is recommended. Brief digestion with hyaluronidase or trypsin aids antigen retrieval.
Where this product 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 product for use in their own system using the appropriate negative/positive controls.
In a simple ELISA, with 1 µg of native antigen coated per well, the 50% OD was observed at an antibody dilution of 1/8K. Under the same conditions, the end point was observed at 1/200K.
