[Histonet] Re: renin
|From:||Jose Luis Palazon Fernandez |
is renin antibody an expensive one?. O just want to know if juxtaglmerular cells are present in an aglomerular fish species I am studying. I only would use it for some 4 or 5 slides and I dont know if it is worth while to buy the antibody As my lab is not specialized in inmunostaining.
thanks in advance for replys
