[Histonet] RE: Cox -2 IHC

From:"C.M. van der Loos"

Dear Moumita Kundu,
If the original protocol for this COX-2 antibody was set up with a TSA detection kit (and was working) there is a good chance that detection of this antibody with neither  LSAB+ nor LSAB2 will show any specific positive staining. Simply because those detection systems are far less sensitive/efficient. My message is to test both detection systems and compare your results.
