  • The image shows staining of Drosophila S2 cells using ab30637 to cis-Golgi/Golgi marker, GM130. For comparison, S2 cells were stained with an antibody to the trans-Golgi marker, GCC88. Gm130 stained the cis-Golgi region and appears to be a superior Golgi marker to GCC88.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding ab30637 and for taking the time to provide some useful details of the experiments. I am very sorry to hear that you are having problems with this antibody.

After reading through the detailed protocol you kindly forwarded to Abcam, I would like to make the following comments/suggestions:

1) This is a polyclonal antibody and there may be batch-to-batch variations. I would suggest increasing the working concentration to 1 µg/ml (overnight incubation at 4oC) as suggested on the on-line datasheet under the Application note.

2) Does the detection system work fine? Have you used it successfully with another primary antibody? Have you run a no primary - only secondary antibody - control to see if any of the non-specific bands are due to the secondary or not?

I hope this will be useful for you. Should you still have any problem with this antibody after following these suggestions, then please do not hesitate to contact our Technical Department again.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I would like to thank you for your response. If the product has gone off we will gladly replace it. However the procedure for this is that we have the protocol used and troubleshooting steps that you have performed for our records. I do apologize for any inconveniences this might cause. If you would you be able to send that information to me I would be able to being processing this for you.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to hear of the difficulties that you have been experiencing using this product. Would you mind sending me the details of your protocol including the tissue type you are working with and your sample preparations? Could you also include any antigen retrieval steps you use, blocking solution and incubation information and the antibody concentrations that you have tried. Any images that you may have and any steps that you have changed while troubleshooting would be extremely helpful as well.

It seems unlikely that your protocol is the issue here but these details will not only help me to better understand your difficulties, they are also used for internal testing of the products if deemed necessary. If we are unable to solve the problems you are experiencing we will replace or refund the antibody according to our Abpromise guarantee.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thanks you very much for sending us more details about the experiment. I am sorry I am not sure why the antibody staining appears spotty. This antibody was used in many publications without problem. So perhaps you have received a bad vial of this product or somehow the sub cellular architecture of the Golgi apparatus collapsed and formed blubs that now appears as spots. To further rule out the problem because of bad vial, I can either send you a new free of charge vial of ab30637 from different lot or a new antibody against the same target. Could you specify which option you would like to go for? I will look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for contacting us and for sending the images. I believe the problem is not due to antibody so I would suggest the following - The antibody is showing consistent results in cells outside the marked area. It looks similar as publication and image on the datasheet. So I am presuming that antibody is fine. However I do not know the reason of blobs that appear in cell centre. These could be due to different reason so may be protocol optimizations can help. My recommendations are - Use higher dilution of primary and secondary antibody. - Increase blocking time from 30 minutes to 1 -1.5 hours. - Could I ask were the cells healthy? - Could you provide details of fixative agent used; how the fixation was performed? - Could you send us an image of no DAPI control image? I look forward to hearing from you soon.
