Antibodies and Controls
These products are intended for use on tissue sections and/or cell smears. Products originating from the same primary antibody have been grouped together. For each group, suitable tissue fixation and pre-treatment of sections are indicated. All Dako antibody reagents for immunohistochemistry are in liquid form and contain an antimicrobial agent.
Concentrated Antibody Reagents
The polyclonal antibody reagents are provided as whole serum, Ig fractions, F(ab')2 fragments or affinity-isolated while the monoclonal antibodies are generally provided as tissue culture supernatants or purified from culture supernatants.
Ready-to-use, for EnVision FLEX
The GA-series is designed for the Dako Omnis platform, the IR-series is designed for Autostainer Link instruments and the IS-series is designed for Dako Autostainer instruments.
The ready-to-use antibody cocktails are designed for optimal performance using EnVision DuoFLEX Doublestain system, and will provide a two-color staining reaction on the same tissue section.
This section presents multipurpose antibodies, and lists the techniques for which they have been tested and proven useful.
Secondary antibodies (antibodies to animal immunoglobulins) are utilized either for the direct detection of animal immunoglobulins or for amplification of the reaction between a primary antibody and the target antigen.
The normal animal sera and animal immunoglobulins listed are well-suited as qualitative negative controls for Dako antibodies.
