Ideal for use in blocking nonspecific binding
- Supplied undiluted with 0.08% sodium azide as a preservative
- Applications include immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, and immunofluorescence
Choose from a variety of sera, which when diluted can be used for blocking nonspecific binding or as an antibody diluent. The sera are pooled samples collected from healthy adult goats, horses, chickens, swine, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Each one is heat-treated and centrifuged to remove precipitates and then filtered. The sera are tested with appropriate antibody to check for possible cross-reactivity.
Cat and dog sera can be added to secondary antibody diluent to adsorb potential cross-reactivity with each animal’s tissue.
