You can buy mouse antimouse primary antibodies already biotinylated, and
avoid the secondary binding problem.  

Dako ARK kit is based on this theory.  We have had success with a mouse to
mouse kit from a company called Scytek out of Logan UT.  After much
discussion at the last NSH convention, it was learned some kits work better
than others based on the fact that some antibodies biotinylate better than

Even with biotinylated primaries, the protocol requires some tweaking ie
less concentrated primary.
