Hi Kim,

You must use Ventana's detection reagents on their instruments; at least the
ES and genII.  They do have a research program available that allows one to
use a different secondary than theirs.  This is primarily for research
purposes.  Maybe the confusion comes from the fact that the instrumentation
allows one to use anyone's primary antibodies.

Hope this clears things up a bit; if you have more questions, they are
readily available to answer them at 1(800)227-2155.
