  • Product overview

    ab127055 is a robust ONE-step polymer system that provides increased sensitivity, time savings and detection simplicity. ab127055 allows the use of mouse antibodies on mouse tissue to obtain excellent signal intensities and clean background. The antibody-antigen interaction is visualized by adding a HRP conjugated secondary antibody followed by a chromogen (e.g. DAB (ab94665)) that yields a permanent brown precipitate. This system is also biotin-free, which eliminates background staining found with traditional biotin-based detection methods and improves signal-to-noise ratios.

  • Mouse Pan CK (Clone AE1/AE3) antibody staining Pan CK in mouse colon tissue with the use of ab127055.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis with ab127055 showing Dazl and Boll protein expression during mouse fetal ovary development.

    High expression of Dazl (top panel) is seen in germ cells through all stages of development. Boll (bottom panel) is only expressed in germ cells during e15.5.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse eye using ab127055 to optimize signal to background staining ratio.


  • Mouse Pax-5 antibody staining Pax-5 in mouse spleen with the use of the ab127055.

Life saving Mouse on Mouse Polymer IHC Kit for IHC

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
We have been having an issue getting this elastase staining to work o mouse lung tissue, given that the elastase ab (ab52484) is mouse originated. We've decided to order this kit and give it a try and did not regret ever since. It was a great kit that allows us to clearly visualized histone staining in addition to the other markers. In the following pictogram, elastase+ signal was labeled as red, while the brown cells are neutrophils.

Postnatal day 6 mouse testes were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. Tissue was embedded in O.C.T. and frozen. 5 micron sections were cut and transferred to slides. Sections were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS, and blocked with a 50/50 mixture of Rodent Block and 3% BSA in 0.1% Triton X-100 + PBS. Sections were then incubated for 1h at RT with either (A) no primary antibody or (B) anti-DDX4 (Abcam ab27591) at a 1:100 dilution in a 50/50 mixture of Rodent Block and 3% BSA in 0.1% Triton X-100 + PBS. Sections were then washed 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS. Donkey Anti-Mouse 555 (Abcam ab150110) applied at a 1:500 dilution in 3% BSA in 0.1% Triton X-100 + PBS. Sections were then mounted after washing 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS.
