  • Western blot detection of human secretory phospholipase A2 (25µg)

    ab23705 at 1/1000 western blot detection of 0.25 ug of human secretory phospolipase A2.
  • IHC image of ab23705 staining in human pancreas formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab23705, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

Many of the protocols out there will call for "either Triton-X or Tween20" for permeabilization/washes and I think either would be a good choice. The advantage to Tween20 is that it is more gentle and less likely to disrupt the cell, however Triton-X i...
