Question

Dear sir/madam,
I am planning to purchase 1852-1 antibodies against androgen receptor through Abcam Europe. I would like to use this antibody for immunohistochemistry on floating brain sections (murine), as one my colleague has already done. However, since on your website you claim that antibody 3165-1 is suitable for immunohistochemistry while 1852-1 is not (although my colleague has used it and it worked) I would like to ask you if it would be possible to get, together with purchased 1852-1 antibody, also a small sample of 3165-1 antibody so I can compare the two which one might be better for our particular application?
Thank you very much in advance!
Yours sincerely,

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry.

I can confirm that in our hands ab52615 (1852-1) is not working in IHC, ICC and IP. Therefore this antibody is not covered by our guarantee since we are not convinced that ab52615 is suitable for these applications.

I can strongly recommend to use ab133273 (3165-1) for your IHC-P experiments. This antibody has been tested to work and we therefore can guarantee this for you.

I am sorry to confirm that because we carry over 90,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us again with any further questions.
