false positive with HRP and DAB
I apologize for hitting send before adding subject on last post!
Good morning Histonetters!
Negative controls (primary ab omitted) for my HRP-conjugated IHC in ffpe
tissue show staining with DAB even though I am doing block for endogenous
peroxidase (5 min in 3% H2O2)after rehydration, before blocking with serum.
I have seen in the archives that one may use a lower concentration of H202
(diluted in PBS)and incubating longer. Is this worth trying?
I will be replacing my bottle of peroxide, then try extending the
incubation time in peroxide, but would like some expert advice on optimal
I am using the Vectastain ready-to-use universal biotinylated secondary ab,
should I consider trying to dilute it?
