I am interested in an anti-dopamine antibody and I see that you have ab6427. Does this antibody work on formalin fixed tissue? Does it work on rat tissue?

Thank you for contacting us.
ab6427 is not guaranteed for use in immunohistochemistry. However, ab1001 (https://www.abcam.com/ab1001) is guaranteed to work in immunohistochemistry and gave good results when fixed with formalin/PFA in paraffin-embedded sections.
Regarding your question about whether this antibody works on rat tissue, because the immunogen of ab1001 and ab6427 is a Chemical / Small Molecule, the species in which this antibody is used is irrelevant. Therefore both these antibodies should work on rat tissue.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
