Thank you very much for the reply.

It is clear from the images provided that the customer has observed some background with the secondary antibody. In order to reduce this, I would advise reducing the concentration which is currently being used. We would recommend initially trying 1/1000-1/5000 for the experiment the customer is currently trying.

I hope this information has been of help. If the customer continues to have problems following this advice please do let us know and we will endeavor to help further.

I hope you ave a nice weekend.

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties with one of our products. We take product complaints very seriously, and investigate every product that we feel may not be performing correctly.

In order to understand what may be contributing to the problems you have encountered, could you please provide me with a few additional details:

1. Which primary antibody was used in the staining? Catalogue number and supplier?

2. Which other secondary antibody was used? Catalogue number and supplier?

3. Would it be possible to provide some images of the staining produced with the ab6939 and the alternative antibody you used in order to understand the differences observed?

4. Could you please provide me with the order number on which ab6939 was purchased?

I look forward to receiving your reply.
