RE: mast cells
There is an interesting product from Chemicon: a directly alk.
phosphatase-conjugated anti-mast cell antibody (MAB1222A). It works for
both cryo and FFPE sections (1:500 overnight 4C; FFPE sections need
citrate6.0 antigen retrieval). Alk. phosphatase activty is visualized with
DAKO Fast Red (for single staining) or Vector Blue (for double staining).
Using these products it will be relatively easy to double-stain with either
CD68 and fibroblast antibodies.
Happy colorful staining!
