[Histonet] Re: ooops, rat on rat

From:Gayle Callis

You could use a biotinylated primary, as in the DAKO ARK methodology, 
eliminate the secondary to avoid having some "host" antiRat detect not only 
the rat primary, but also bind to rat tissue, then come back with a 
Strepavidin-HRP or AP.  Sometimes you have to dilute out the primary more -

I am not sure if anyone has a rat on rat kit, try Scytek out of Logan UT, 
you might get lucky on a kit.
