[Histonet] IHC polymer detection system for rat tissues

From:"Ronald P. Wilson"

Has anyone found a successful polymer detection system (i.e., Envision or
others) directed against a mouse monoclonal on rat tissue. We tried one but
got a lot of background staining, I suspect from cross reactivity with
closely related antigens. Our standard IHC approach uses an anti-mouse,
rat-absorbed secondary antibody, but I would like to get the added
sensitivity of a polymer-based system.
