We've been using Factor XIII, A-subunit polyclonal antibody from Calbiochem
(Cat.No.233498) on skin conditions successfully so far.
However this antibody was discontinued few years ago and they are offering
Factor XIII, S-subunit only. Although I haven't tried FXIII S-unit
immunostaining on human skin, I tried two other monoclonal Factor XIIIa but
the stains were not as good as our current one.
I tried Neomaker and Novocastra's. Can anyone suggest the source of good
FXIIIa please? Thank you.
