Re: [Histonet] Labvision Neomarkers GCDFP-15 Ab1, Clone 23A3

From:"Richard Cartun"

We use Signet's GCDFP-15 mAb at 1:100 for 30' with good results.  A 1:25
dilution sounds "expensive"!

Dear Histonetters,

I am using Neomarker's GCDFP Ab-1, Clone 23A3 at a 1:25 titer. I use a
6.0 citrate for Target Retrieval for 20 minutes in a Steamer and 20
minute cooling. I stain on the Dako Autostainer with Envision+ at 30
minutes in Primary Ab, 30 minutes in Polymer and 5 minutes in DAB. 

The staining results are just OK nothing extraordinary. 

Has anyone used this antibody and had great results?

If so, what are you doing differently than my protocol?

Do you think a 9.0 EDTA buffer for Retrieval would be better?

What about increasing my time in DAB?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have emailed their techservice but thought my peers might have more
to teach me.

Thanks so much,
Theresa Rohr
