  • Assay type
  • Product overview

    This IHC kit is used to detect 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 Rabbit Specific HRP/DAB Detection IHC Kit ab80437, 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.

  • Notes

    The previous version of this kit, the EXPOSE Rabbit Specific HRP/DAB Detection IHC Kit, was used by researchers to stain over 75,000 slides since 2012 (based on volumes of reagent sold).

  • ab236469 Rabbit Specific HRP-DAB IHC Detection Kit - Micro-Polymer on Human Tonsil staining CD3
  • 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.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse lung tissue labeling Ki67 detected with ab80437 (this kit is identical to ab80437, except that it uses the HRP micro-polymer secondary antibody used by Abcam's R&D team for antibody validation in IHC). Tissue sections were embedded in paraffin and were counterstained with hematoxylin. 

  • Immunohistochemical (frozen) analysis of MC38 tumor sections labeling CD3 with ab16669 at 1/400 dilution. Sections were fixed with acetone, treated with peroxidase block to quench endogenous peroxidase, and then further blocked with a 10% goat serum and 5% BSA solution. CD3 positive T cells were detected using ab80437 (this kit is identical to ab80437, except that it uses the HRP micro-polymer antibody used by Abcam's R&D team for antibody validation in IHC). Invasive margin (top) shows sections derived from the periphery of the tumor and interior (bottom) shows sections from within the tumor.
