Re: [Histonet] My frustrating experience with double fluorescence staining!

From:Adam Perry

Shouldn't your blocking buffer use donkey serum, since both of your secondaries are generated in donkey?  I would think that the rabbit serum block with your first secondary antibody (donkey anti-rabbit) would produce high background and non-specific staining...
