Re: [Histonet] microglial marker

From:Gayle Callis

F4/80 from Serotec

a previous message from Barb Wright Histonet using FFPE murine tissue is:

We successfully stain with F4/80 (Serotec #MCAP497) on paraffin embedded
mouse tissues.  We use spleen as a positive control.  0.4% pepsin at 37C
for 10 minutes for antigen retrieval and an overnight  at 4C incubation
in a 10ug/ml dilution of F4/80.
If you want the procedure just let me know.
