Dear Abcam Team
I am writing to you regarding the antibody mentioned above. I am interested specifically in the goat polyclonal anti-V5 and unfortunately it doesnt look like it has been tested for wholemount immunohistochemistry. This is the application i would like to use it for. Is it possible for you to let me know if there is any information available on this at all? Or would it be possible to acquire a testing sample of the antibody?
Thanks for your time

Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, as you have discovered from the datasheet of the anti-V5 antibody (ab9137), this antibody has not been used in whole mount IHC to our knowledge as yet. This does not mean that the antibody would not work in this application, simply that we have not tested it and we would therefore not be able to guarantee this. We are not able to provide sample sizes for any of our products. This is due to the size of our catalogue and the logistics this would involve. However, if you would like to purchase ab9137 and use it with your wholemount IHC staining, we can offer you a testing discount. This offer means that if you purchase ab9137 as normal, test the antibody with your samples and let us know of the results through an Abreview (no matter whether positive or negative) you would be eligible for a free primary antibody of your choice from our catalogue (or the equivalent price of ab9137 off any product).
More information on this offer can be found here:
Please note that the antibody to be tested must be purchased, tested, the Abreview submitted and the free product claimed within a 4 month period.
If you would be interested in participating in this scheme please do let me know as a discount code needs to be issued prior to the purchase of ab9137.
I hope this information has been of help. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us again.
