Re: [Histonet] KERMIX

From:"Joe Nocito"

where is this pathologist from?
    I was at the AFIP when our keratin rabbit bit the dust. I was part of
the team that developed Kermix. Actually, we wanted to call it the "BOZO"
antibody, but our pathologist didn't think it would be appropriate to see "
The Bozo antibody was used on...." in literature, so we named it Kermix.
    If I remember it was a 2:1 mixture of Dako's cytokeratin cat # M701
(don't remember the clone) to Bectin-Dickinson's AE1/AE3 antibody.
    At the time Fluffy died, back in 1987, there wasn't many reliable pan
cytokeratin antibodies available.
    Still would have liked it to be known as the Bozo antibody though.
