This is confusing. ab113316 is a kit not antibody, customer would not be requiring a DAB kit for this.

For ab101854, ab80436 will be a good product.


Thank you for contacting us.

The kits ab80436 and ab64264, both will be OK to use with ab10148 only because it is rabbit antibody, you can select any one of them. Please note that these kits cannot be used with ab75714 because it is a chicken ...
