[Histonet] ED1 Ab from Serotec

From:Sharon Cooperman

Hi Inga (and everyone else),

Does you know if the ED1 antibody from Serotec (anti-CD68) stains all 
(or at least most) macrophages or only activated macrophages?  Also, 
in the brain, can you use it to distinguish between activated and 
non-activated microglia?  I have used it on non-activated macrophages 
in various tissues and it seems to work great and be specific for 
macrophages.  Also, the data sheet that comes with it says it works 
for most macrophages. However, I've been told that it only stains 
activated microglia.  Do you know the answer?
