Images

  • IHC image of beta actin 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 ab8227, 1/1000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature. A goat anti-rabbit biotinylated secondary antibody (ab6720, 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.

Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 4% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500) for 16 hours at 4°C. A Biotin-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (ab6720) (1/2000) was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you for your reply.

I would be pleased to provide you with the Abtrial testing discount codes. In order to do so, could you please confirm which distributor you will be purchasing the antibodies from?

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Question
Answer

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

The antibodies you have chosen for your ELISA should work well together. The immunogen used to raise the mouse monoclonal ab54219 does not cover the Y223 region of BTK and they should therefore not be detecting the same epitope.

However, as we have not tested these antibodies together in a sandwich ELISA we would not be able to guarantee their compatibility. For this reason, you would be eligible to take part in our Abtrial testing scheme.

The way this scheme works is that you would purchase ab54219 and ab51210 as normal and test it in your ELISA. As long as you then share the results with us through submitting an Abreview (no matter whether the results are negative or not) you would then receive the value of ab54219 or ab51210 of a subsequent Abcam order.

More information on this offer can be found from the following link:

https://www.abcam.com/abtrail

The only constraint in this offer is that the antibody to be tested must be purchased, the Abreview submitted, and the free credit claimed within a 4 month period.

If you would like to participate in this offer please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to the purchasing of either ab54219 or ab51210.

You mentioned that you were setting up an Alphascreen. I am sorry but I did not understand how this would work. Are you just going to use one of the primary antibodies for this? If you could explain this a little more I should be able to help further.

I hope this information has been of help. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Answer

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 conjugation. The ab6788 and ab6720 is estimated to have a conjugation ratio of 10-20 per IgG molecule whilst ab97049 and ab97021 have a ratio of 1:4.

I am not familiar with the amplification technique you intend to use and cannot therefore anticipate how these differences may alter the results.

If you could share a more detailed description of the procedure I may be able to advise in more detail.

I hope this information has been of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Answer

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

As you mentioned in your email, we at Abcam cannot guarantee that these antibodies would still work after this time, but if have enough samples to run a few test batches to check the validity of the antibodies, then that would definitely be worth trying. If, however your samples are scarce and rather precious, then I would advise playing it safe and purchasing new antibodies.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Answer

Thank you for providing that extra information. It has helped greatly to understand what you have been doing and what may help to improve the signal of the staining. There are a few areas that I would suggest would be worth optimising (if you have not already done so) which may lead to an improved signal. 1. Fixation You have stated that you are fixing the tissue for a minimum of 48 hours. The ideal fixation time will depend on the size of the tissue block and type of tissue but usually 18-24 hours seems ideal for most applications. Over-fixation can lead to the epitope being masked. 2. Antigen retrieval Antigen retrieval can be used to overcome the masking mentioned for the fixation. Depending on the level of masking, different conditions of antigen retrieval may be required. For example, if using a microwave we would usually suggest trying retrieval for 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes to see which produces the optimal results. 3. Hydrogen peroxide blocking I would suggest performing the hydrogen peroxide blocking following the incubation of the primary antibody if you have not already tried this. The hydrogen peroxide can sometimes affect sensitive epitopes and by performing the step following the incubation with the primary antibody this will not affect the staining. 4. Primary antibody incubation You mention that you have optimised this step by changing the dilution and incubation time. If you have not already done so I would suggest attempting the incubation for 1-1.5 hours at room temperature with agitation. 5. Detection method Different techniques can be used to directly amplify the signal. Currently you are using streptavidin-HRP conjugate which is labelled in a 1:1 ratio. It is possible to employ avidin which has been labelled in a 3:1 ratio with HRP using kits such as Piercenet product 32020. Although avidin can cause greater background compared to using streptavidin. Alternatively HRP polymer can be employed. This consists of using a secondary antibody which is attached to a polymer-HRP complex. Abcam has the following product to offer, ab2891, however this is a little pricey. I would suggest trying to optimise the steps 1-4 and if sufficient progress is not made contemplate employing one of signal amplification methods mentioned. We have quite a detailed guide to IHC which may be of help to you. This outlines many of the different experimental parameters which need to be considered when performing IHC and suggestions to improve experiments: https://www.abcam.com/ps/pdf/protocols/ihc_p.pdf I hope this information has been of help and your staining improves. If you want any further information or help please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. I'm glad to hear you have been getting good staining with ab469. In order to help you obtain more intense staining would you mind filling in the form which I have attached to this email. It will allow me to more fully understand the protocol which you have been performing and any areas in which it may be worthwhile to optimise. Could you also answer the following questions: 1. which HRP conjugate have you been using (streptavidin-HRP? could you tell me the catalogue no. etc) 2. in what dilution have you been using the secondary antibody? ab8114 is supplied at a concentration of 1 mg/mL. The recommended working concentration of this antibody when using it for immunohistochemistry with paraffin embedded sections is 5 µg/ml. This equates to a dilution of 1/200. This is only a guideline and may need to be optimised for the staining which you are performing. I hope this information has been of help and look forward to your reply.
