Dear Tech support
Could you speculate, based on immunogen sequence, the chances of good antibody specificity against Rat for WB and IHC-P?
Thank you very much for the support.

Thank you for your enquiry.
I am sorry to confirm that both Pancreatic Lipase antibodies you mention (ab124915, ab133556) are stated as 'does not react with mouse' and we would therefore not expect them to detect in this species,
Regrettably as far as we are aware, non of the other pancreatic lipase antibodies has ever been tested in IHC-P or rat. All tested applications and tested species covered by the 6 month guarantee are specified on our datasheets, and these are updated as soon as any new information is brought to our attention.
I can suggest to consider trying ab306746. The alignment of the immunogen with the rat sequence is high, and so we would predict this antibody would detect in rat. However, please note we are not able to guarantee this without further testing.
If the customer would like to test ab306746 antibody in both rat and IHC-P, please do not hesitate to contact us again prior to the purchase by replying to this message as they will be eligible for our testing discount program.
Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Plus, each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further advice or information.
