Applications:ICC, IHC (FS), IHC (PS), IP
Recommended Dilutions/Conditions:Immunohistochemistry (paraffin sections):
- For optimal staining, the sections should be pretreated with an antigen unmasking solution.
- The antibody may be diluted to ≥1:25 for biotin based detection systems.
- For optimal staining, the primary antibody should be incubated 60 minutes at room temperature.

Western Blot (1:50-1:100)

Suggested dilutions/conditions may not be available for all applications. Optimal conditions must be determined individually for each application.
