  • IHC image of Histone H1 staining in a section of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded [human normal colon]*. The section was pre-treated using pressure cooker heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6) for 30mins. The section was then incubated with ab11080, 1/1000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature. A goat anti-mouse biotinylated secondary antibody (ab6788, 1/1000 dilution), was used to detect the primary, and visualized using an HRP conjugated ABC system. Streptavidin HRP was used, ab7403 at a 1/10000 dilution. DAB was used as the chromogen (ab103723), diluted 1/100 and incubated for 10min at room temperature. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. The inset negative control image is taken from an identical assay without primary antibody.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

  • Ab6788 was used at dilution 1/500 with the primary antibody ab2866 in IHC-P. See the review on ab2866.

Thank you for contacting us and you interest in our products.

There are a few differences between the two pairs of antibodies you have identified. A few of these include the purification used (affitiny vs IgG fraction) as well as the ratio of...

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I feel that both products are suitable for IHC-P. Both have many specific references and in-depth scientific support data right on the datasheet. They differ mainly in the species in which they were raised and i...
