Yes, I am happy to confirm that rabbit serum ab7487 can be used for blocking in IP.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you would need some additional or more specific information.
I wish you a good day!

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
Those values are for whole protein value which we supply as a customer service. The total protein value is not considered when making blocking solutions as the percentage used is of the whole serum. Therefore to create a 100 ml or a 10% IHC block you would use 10 ml of serum in 90 ml of diluent.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or there is any other way that I might help you.

Thank you for your inquiry.
According to the standard protocol we have for free floating sections, we recommend to incubate the sections with 0.1M PB/0.3% triton/1% blocking serum for at least 1 h.
The whole protocol can be found here:


As always certain steps including the amount of blocking agent might have to be optimized according to circumstances like sample, results, etc.
I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me again with any further questions.

Thank you for your inquiry.
I assume you would like to use this serum for IHC in the blocking step?
In this case the serum does not have to be heat treated. The heat treatment is done to inactivate complement in FCS meant for cell culture for example.
I recommend to just aliquot and freeze the serum.
I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me again with any further questions.

Merci pour votre requête. Le ab31169 est un sous forme  de sérum entière qui n'est pas purifié et nous n'avons pas déterminé la concentration d'immunoglobulines. La concentration d'immunoglobulines totale est d'immunoglobulines spécifiques est très varié de sérum à sérum. Il m'est donc difficile de faire une estimation. Comme ordre de grandeur, la quantité d'immunoglobulines est souvent aux alentours des 10 mg/ml, et la concentration d'anticorps spécifique normalement en dessous de 0.5 mg/ml. Si vous avez besoin de faire un isotype contrôle, je peux vous conseiller d'utiliser un sérum de lapin non purifié aussi. Si vous avez pas un tel sérum, je peux vous conseiller le ab7487. Click here (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=7487). Nous espérons que ces informations aideront. N'hésitez pas à me recontacter pour plus de renseignements.
