Thank you for replying with that information.

As I mentioned over the phone, I have spoken to the source of these kits and we do not have any experimental data using either the ACE or DABdetection kits (ab64260, ab64261, ab80437 and ab94361)for IHC on fresh PBMC samples, asallof these kits have only been tested on formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue samples.Wewould expect that as long as the primary antibody binds the target as expected that both kits could be suitable foryour samples but as we have not tested it ourselves we would not be able to guarentee this.

There should be good contrast if using the AEC or DAB kit with hematoxylin as counterstain. We counterstain with hematoxylin in-house regardless ofwhether DAB or AEC is used. The sensitivity betweenAEC and DABis similar. I would recommend using ab94361 or ab80437 if you expect the PBMC samples to contain any endogenous biotin.I am sorry but I cannot recommend a particular supplier of hematoxylin.

And to answer your final question, the mounting media ab64230 should be suitable for your purposes.

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

Thank you for contacting us.

Differences in the chemical compositions of the mounting medium make using one product for both IHC and IF difficult. The conditions required for excellent perioxidase preservation are not neccessarily good for the anti- photobleaching requirements of IF. As such I cannot recommend a single medium for you customer but suggest they by mounting mediums specific to their needs.

Our standard mointing medium (ab64230;https://www.abcam.com/Mounting-Medium-ab64230.html) is appropriate for IHC.

For IF I recommend BrightMount/Plus (ab103748;https://www.abcam.com/BrightMount-Plus-25ml-Aqueous-Mounting-Medium-Anti-fading-for-Fluorescent-Staining-ab103748.html)

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
