I am interested in purchasing a secondary antibody for use in immunohistochemistry that can work with the following primary antibodies from your company (ab24590, ab7817, ab955, and ab89064). I have searched the catalog and found ab6728 and ab6788 as possible candidates for this purpose. Could you kindly suggest on which one would work better with those primary antibodies for immunohistochemistry (IHC-P)? Thank you,

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 in the tags used for detection. Ab6728 is an HRP conjugate whereas Ab6788 is Biotin labeled. I believe that you should choose the secondary which has an associated detection system that you are most familiar with in case you should run into any staining issues.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.
