    Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections)
    I used this antibody to detect sheep anti tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) labelling of splenic nerves in mouse spleen sections along with rat anti-CD35 labelling of follicular dendritic cells (FDC) and rabbit anti PrP labelling of prion protein. It was diluted 1/200 for use on frozen sections that were fixed in acetone and blocked with serum for 30 mins at room temperature. I chose this antibody as I found it difficult to find secondary's that were anti-sheep. I was concerned that the FITC might bleach during confocal microscopy however I was able to scan the triple labelling without any bleaching occurring.

    Thanks for your reply. I am very sorry these anti-GFAP and anti-MAP2 antibodies continue to give you trouble. I'd be happy to send you any two replacement antibodies from our catalog. Or if you prefer I can set up a credit or refund instead. Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

    to whom may be concerned: our lab ordered four antibodies from your company in July. we cannot find the order list now. ab90601 sheep polyconal to GFAP. ab11267 mouse monoclonal HM-2 to MAP2 - neuronal marker and other two secondary antibodies: ab6896 Donkey polyclonal secondary antibody to sheep IgG - H&L(FITC) and ab47052 Goat polyclonal secondary antibody to Mouse IgG - H&L(AMCA). we used the GFAP to stain astrocyte of rat brain frozen sections and MAP2 to stain neuron of rat brain frozen sections. However, we found the images of GFAP staining were very similar to neurons, clearly not astrocytes. we repeat experiment at least three times and obtain the same results. last time, we borrowed GFAP antibody from other lab ( DAKO company product ) and followed the same procedures and make comparison with your company's GFAP. We obtained typical image of astrocyte by GFAP of borrowed antibody (DAKO product). However, for your company's GFAP, we obtained images similar to neurons just like before. Besides, for the MAP2 of your company, we cannot get any typical images of neurons although we followed the same procedures as doing GFAP. For every experiment, we made negative controls. Finally, we believe there must be somthing wrong with your two primary antibodies(GFAP and MAP2). It cost us more than two weeks to do such experiments which made us very frustrated. We just want to proceed our experiment quickly. so IF possible, someone can check it for us and send us the right antibody quickly so we can continue our experiments.

    We spoke just a short while ago regarding these issues you were having with ab90601 and ab11267. I have processed the replacement orders as we discussed and sent you an update via email just a few minutes ago. You should receive these 2 replacement antibodies for ab90601 and ab11267 tomorrow. I am sorry for the trouble these 2 antibodies have caused and I do hope the replacements work as expected. Please feel free to follow up with me if you need anything further.
