  • Description

    Rabbit polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Goat IgG - H&L (DyLight® 550), pre-adsorbed
  • Host species

  • Target species

  • Specificity

    By immunoelectrophoresis and ELISA this antibody reacts specifically with Goat IgG and with light chains common to other Goat immunoglobulins. No antibody was detected against non immunoglobulin serum proteins. Reduced cross-reactivity to chicken, horse, human, mouse, pig, rabbit and rat was detected.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab96916 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/50 - 1/500.

DyLight® 550 replaces DyLight® 549. The DyLight® 550 excitation is 562nm and the emission is 576nm. DyLight® 550 provides the same orange-to-red fluorescence and photostability as the DyLight® 549 dye. Please refer to the vial in order to check whether the product you received is DyLight® 549 or DyLight® 550. This information however will have no impact on your experiments. For more information please refer to DyLight® 550.

ICC/IF 1/50 - 1/500.
Flow Cyt 1/50 - 1/200.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for the details provided. I am sorry you are having difficulty with these products.

Having reviewed this case, I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimize the results from ab27985 and ab96916.

1) Increase the Triton X to 0.25% for 10 min to ensure permeabilization so the nuclear stain can be seen fully

2) Add a no primary control to see if the background is from the secondary. If it is, you may wish to use 10% rabbit serum instead of 5% BSA to block background from the secondary.

3) Try increasing primary antibody incubation to ON at 4C to ensure specific signal is strong.

4) Add extra washes after primary and secondary to reduce background.

Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do let me know.

In the event that a product is not functioning in the species and applications cited on the product datasheet (and the problem has been reported within 6 months of purchase), we would be pleased to provide a free of charge replacement, credit note, or refund.

I hope this information is helpful, and I thank you for your cooperation.
