  • Product overview

    This IHC kit is used to detect mouse and rabbit primary antibodies in immunohistochemistry (IHC). It uses an HRP micro-polymer secondary antibody for highly sensitive detection.

    HRP micro-polymer methods are more sensitive than the traditional streptavidin-biotin method, and they do not require a blocking step for endogenous biotin.

    This kit is an exact copy of EXPOSE Mouse and Rabbit Specific HRP/DAB Detection IHC Kit ab80436, except that it uses the HRP micro-polymer antibody used during the validation of Abcam's antibodies in IHC. This HRP micro-polymer antibody was identified by our R&D team as giving the most sensitive and specific staining. 

    The kit includes ready-to-use hydrogen peroxide blocking reagent, protein blocking reagent, HRP micro-polymer conjugated goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody, and DAB chromogen/substrate. It includes an unconjugated rabbit anti-mouse antibody, which is used together with the HRP polymer anti-rabbit antibody to detect mouse primary antibodies.

  • Notes

    The previous version of this kit, the EXPOSE Mouse and Rabbit Specific HRP/DAB Detection IHC Kit, was used by researchers to stain over 150,000 slides since 2012 (based on volumes of reagent sold).

  • ab236466 Mouse and Rabbit Specific HRP-DAB Detection IHC Kit on Human Tonsil staining CD20
  • ab209064 at 1:2000 staining TMEM119 antibody in mouse cerebrum tissue by immunohistochemistry (FFPE). Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded mouse cerebrum tissue labeling TMEM119 with ab209064 at 1/2000 dilution followed by the same HRP micro-polymer goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody used in this kit. Positive staining on glial cells in mouse cerebrum is observed. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval using ab93684 (Tris/EDTA buffer, pH 9.0) before commencing with IHC staining protocol. Counter stained with hematoxylin.

  • ab1220 staining human kidney sections by IHC-P using EXPOSE IHC detection kit ab80436 (this kit is identical to ab80436, except that it uses the same HRP polymer secondary antibody used by Abcam's R&D team for antibody validation). Formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections were pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval (using a pressure cooker) with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6) for 30 minutes. The section was incubated with ab1220, 5 µg/ml, for 1 hour at room temperature. DAB was used as the chromogen and the section was counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
