  • ab15694 staining pan Macrophage in murine liver tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step was performed using citrate buffer pH 6.0. Samples were then blocked with 2% milk for 10 minutes at 20°C followed by incubation with the primary antibody at a 1/4 dilution for 2 hours at 4°C.

Thank you for your enquiry and patience. I regret to inform you that this antibody has not yet been tested for application in IHC-P (paraffin sections) and so I cannot provide you with the protocol that was used. I have removed this application from the online datasheet and do apologize for this. If you would like a refund or credit note, please let me know. This antibody is expected to work in IHC-P however, as the unconjugated version of this clone, BM8, is suitable for this application. The non-biotinylated antibody reacts on paraffin sections after digestion with proteinase K (Dako, ready to use) for 10 minutes at room temperature.
