[Histonet] antibodies for human and bovine collagen type 1


I'm working with collagen matrixes, made of bovine type I dermal collagen.
I am seeding the matrix with Human stromal fibroblast that secrete type I
human collagen in to the matrix. My question is: are there primary
antibodies specific to human and bovine collagen type 1? I have asked a few
companies, and they are not sure about the cross reactivity between the
two.  I suspect that human and bovine collagen are too similar in structure
for me to distinguish between the two with immunofluoresence confocal
