Veterinary Viral Ab's

From:Greg Dobbin

Hello All,
I'm wondering if any of you fellow Vet Medicine types know of a 
source of antibodies (Poly- or Monoclonal) to Porcine Cirocovirus 
and Bovine Respiratoty Syncytial Virus (BRSV)? 

I see our friends at VMRD have Direct FA conjugates to these; 
which leads me to my next question: what is to be expected from 
staining formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections with 
direct FA ab's? (I think I'll re-post this particular question to the list 
with the subject: "Direct FA on FFPE", to get a wider response. My 
apologies in advance to those of you who end up opening both 

I seem to remember trying this at one time (when I worked in a 
virology lab) and had good results. Does it really depend on the 
antigen in question and how it responds to fixation and processing?

Any and all responses welcome!
