Thank you for contacting us.

I think this information would need to be obtained from the manufacturer of the microscope and filters that the customer is planning touse. They would be able to exactly tell the customer which wavelengths can be detected with these 2 filters.

The filter I 450-490 FT510 LP520 would probably work with the for 488 secondary antibody (ab96919), but I am not certain about the second one. The manufacturer would also be able to tell what other filters to use to make this work for the 594 secondary antibody (ab98768).

The numbers 488 and 594 refer to the excitation wavelength of the fluorophore. The emission wavelength are 519 nm (for the 488) and 617 nm (for the 594 fluorophore).

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for providing that extra information. Out of the secondaries used, the DyLight488 (ab96919) definitely seems to be producing more diffuse, non-nuclear staining compared to the other three. It may be that this could be reduced by optimising the blocking conditions and the antibody concentration. However, from the protocol you have used, I would expect the results to be better.

It may be that unfortunately you have received a faulty batch of this product. I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.

If you would like, I can change the antibody for an alternative lot or I can offer an alternative antibody altogether (such as ab96895 or ab96899). These are both secondary antibodies to rabbit IgG with DyLight488 conjugation. If you would prefer a different conjugate I could accommodate this too. Alternatively I can provide a full refund.

In order to process any of these options I will need an order number on which the antibody was ordered (or an approximate date of the order and the delivery address).

I look forward to hearing how you would like to proceed.

Thank you for taking time to complete our questionnaire. I am sorry to hear that the Donkey anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (DyLight® 488) secondary antibody (ab96919) is not providing satisfactory results. The details provided will enable us to investigate this case and will provide us with vital information for monitoring product quality.

Having reviewed this case, I would like to clarify a few points in order to understand the problems you have been having more fully.

1. You mention that the problem is non-specific staining, could you share the image obtained from the staining with me? Do you get the same staining with the "no-primary" control??

2. Do you have the catalogue number for the primary antibody used? Was this the same primary antibody used with the Cy2 and Alexa488 staining? Would you be able to share the images produced from these experiments?

These details will greatly help me to understand what may be going wrong.

In the event that a product is not functioning in the species and applications cited on the product datasheet (and the problem has been reported within 6 months of purchase), we would be pleased to provide a free of charge replacement, credit note, or refund. In order to process this I would need an order number or the date of the order and the delivery address in order to locate your order.

I hope this information is helpful, and I thank you for your cooperation.
