RE: [Histonet] Mycobacterium bovis (BCG) antibody

From:"Elizabeth Chlipala"


We haved used this antibody in research quite a bit on human, mouse and
guinea pig specimens of tuberculosis.  We used the antibody from Dako.
It works quite well on FFPE tissue, but there is one thing that you need
to be aware of and that it is not entirely specific to MTB it will also
stain other gram positive bacillia.  I believe that is stated on the
spec sheet.

My dermatopathologist asked me to look into this antibody to add to our
menu to ccreen for microorganisms.  I would appreciate any advice
concerning vendors, conditions, etc.   Thanks in advance for your help.
