  • Target

    • Relevance
      Enterococci form part of the lactic acid bacteria family and are the third most important bacterial genus in hospital infections, especially Enterococcus (E.) faecium. In food they can spoil processed meats but they are equally important for ripening and aroma development of certain traditional cheeses and sausages, and are used as human probiotics. However, they possesses a broad spectrum antibiotic resistance which has important implications to human health and disease.
    • Alternative names
      • E. faecium antibody
      • E.faecalis antibody

    • Immunohistochemical analysis of porcine plasma-based in vitro grown biofilm, staining Enterococcus with ab19980.

      Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 1% BSA for 30 minutes a room temperature. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/10000 in blocking buffer) for 18 hours at 4°C. Staining was detected using DAB.
