Hi Carmen. Here is the info on the HHV8 clone that we use. We have had good
luck with it, and no major problems getting it to work. Be sure that you
your pattern of positivity is a speckled nucleus.

clone: LN-1 (rat IgG)
Mfgr/Vendor: Advanced Biotechnologies
Control:  Kaposi's sarcoma
Pretreatment:  10mM Citrate solution inside a microwave pressure cooker and
cooked at pressure for 8 minutes followed by a 10 minute cooldown.   Wash in
Dilution:  Apply at 1:1000 and incubate for 40 minutes @RT.
Secondary: Biotinylated anti-rat at 1:500 for 20 minutes @RT (Vector Labs)
Detection: Elite ABC for 20 minutes @RT (Vector Labs)
Chromogen:  DAB
Positivity: nuclei are speckled
