  • ab15694 staining pan Macrophage in murine liver tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step was performed using citrate buffer pH 6.0. Samples were then blocked with 2% milk for 10 minutes at 20°C followed by incubation with the primary antibody at a 1/4 dilution for 2 hours at 4°C.
