TripleStain IHC Kit: R&R&M on human tissue (DAB, AP/Red & Green/HRP) (ab183288)


  • Product name

    TripleStain IHC Kit: R&R&M on human tissue (DAB, AP/Red & Green/HRP)
  • Assay type

    Polymer Multiplex
  • Product overview

    Abcam's TripleStain IHC Kit (ab183288) is designed to be used with one mouse and two rabbit primary antibodies, supplied by the user, to detect three distinct antigens on human tissue or cell samples. This kit has been tested on paraffin embedded tissue specimens, however, it can also be used for frozen tissue or cell smears.


    Triple staining uses traditional and non-traditional methods in immunohistostaining to reveal three distinct antigens and their co-expression on a single tissue. Abcam's TripleStain IHC Kit (ab183288) supplies polymer enzyme conjugates: Mouse HRP Polymer, Rabbit AP Polymer and Rabbit HRP Polymer with three chromogens, DAB (brown); Permanent Red (red); and Emerald (green). Abcam's TripleStain IHC Kit (ab183288) is a non-biotin system, avoiding non-specific binding caused by endogenous biotin. This kit has been optimized to have no cross detection when detecting two primary antibodies from the same host species using our unique blocking system. Simplified steps allow users to complete triple staining within 5 hours (without antigen retrieval) or 6 hours (with antigen retrieval). The well tested protocol provides the user with the ability to permanently mount slides with a coverslip.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry.

We do not have experience on testing ab183288 with autostainers, some of our customers used GBI other polymer detection kits on autostainer, which worked well for them.

One thing to clarify is that ab183288 is a triple staining kit with Emerald chromogen which is water soluble, it requires doing hematoxylin prior to emerald chromogen step, quick wash after stained with emerald chromogen, and air dry before going to dehydration step . Please use fresh ethanol and xylene to dehydrate and clear if staining of either emerald or permanent red fades.

Please let me know if you have any question. Have a great day.
