I am writing in regards to the Anti-Cytokeratin 14 (ab108417) we recently purchased from you. I have made several attempts at staining with this antibody and have not had any positive results. Below is what I have tried, Is there something I am missing or is it possible that the antibody is not any good? The control tissue was a sample of Human skin.
