    12% SDS PAGE
  • IHC image of Hsp22/HSPB8 staining in Human normal skeletal muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab96837, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.


    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.

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of Hsp22/HSPB8 expression in PFA-fixed HeLa cells, using ab96837 at 1/200 dilution. Lower image was merged with DNA probe.
