Yes, ab97120 will pair well with ab32349.

Thank you for spotting that comment about poor mouse reactivity for ab70808, anti-Vmat2. There have not been many complaints but I did find one from a few years ago about poor staining of mouse brain. The better choice (and I should have recommended this first but I was not sure if you were willing to buy an anti-goat secondary) is ab87594 which is raised against a mouse Vmat2 peptide.
