Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab192847 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|mIHC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
Boil tissue section in citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Incubate with primary antibody for 10 minutes at room temperature.
Recommend Hu species. IHC result showed staining on the macrophages in the human tissues such as tonsil, spleen and colon. The mouse and rat tissues showed no staining.
Incubate with primary antibody for 30 minutes at 4 °C.
FunctionCould play a role in phagocytic activities of tissue macrophages, both in intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracellular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. Binds to tissue- and organ-specific lectins or selectins, allowing homing of macrophage subsets to particular sites. Rapid recirculation of CD68 from endosomes and lysosomes to the plasma membrane may allow macrophages to crawl over selectin-bearing substrates or other cells.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed by blood monocytes and tissue macrophages. Also expressed in lymphocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Expressed in many tumor cell lines which could allow them to attach to selectins on vascular endothelium, facilitating their dissemination to secondary sites.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the LAMP family.
modificationsN- and O-glycosylated.
Cellular localizationCell membrane and Endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane.

Fluorescence multiplex immunohistochemical analysis of normal human tonsil tissue (formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded section).
Merged staining of anti-PD1 (ab237728; orange; Opal™520), anti-PDL1 (ab237726; green; Opal™540), anti-CD68 (ab192847; yellow; Opal™570), anti-CD3 (ab16669; red; Opal™620), anti-Ki67 (ab16667; light blue; Opal™650) and anti-PanCK (ab7753; grey; Opal™690).
The immunostaining was performed on a Leica Biosystems BOND® RX instrument with an Opal™ 7-color automation IHC kit (NEL821001KT, Akoya Biosciences®).
The section was incubated in six rounds of staining; in the order of ab237728 (1/500 dilution), ab237726 (1/500 dilution), ab192847 (1/300 dilution), ab16669 (1/300 dilution), ab16667 (1/200 dilution) and ab7753 (1/200 dilution); each using a separate fluorescent tyramide signal amplification system.
Sodium citrate antigen retrieval (Leica ER1, pH6.0, 30 minutes) was used in between rounds of tyramide signal amplification to remove the antibody from the previous round, to avoid any cross-reactivity.
DAPI (dark blue) was used as a nuclear counter stain.
Microscopy and pseudocoloring of individual Opal™ dyes was performed using a Vectra Polaris.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human tonsil tissue sections labeling CD68 with ab192847 at 1/100 dilution (0.184 μg/ml) (incubated for 10 minutes at room temperature). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 minutes. Goat Anti-Rabbit & Mouse IgG (HRP) was used as the secondary antibody. Hematoxylin was used as a counterstain. Negative control: PBS instead of the primary antibody.
Positive staining on the macrophages in human tonsil, performed on a Leica Biosystems BOND® RX instrument.
Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human tonsil tissue stained for CD68 using ab192847 at 1/100 dilution in immunohistochemical analysis.
Flow cytometric analysis of Raji (human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line) cells labeling CD68 with ab192847 at 1/100 dilution (green) compared with a negative control rabbit IgG (blue).
