Re: CD31

Dako's CD31 is not a kit.  I purchase that concentrated antibody and use it at a 1:10 dilution it may work at a better dilution for you.
I pretreat in Dako's Target Retrieval Solution (TRS) for 40 minutes and  apply the antibody for 30 minutes at room temperature, buffer in between all steps . After the CD31, the secondary that  I use is Dako's detection kit LSAB2 cat# K0675, (that's their large volume kit, they also have a small volume kit.)  The LSAB2 kit directions are easy to follow.  You need to provide buffer.  Dako has that too. I use their TBS cat#S1968. (large volume, they have small volume too).  Then I use Dako's DAB kit. cat# K3466.   Good Luck

Is the Dako's CD31 kit contain everything that I needed to do for ICC and I 
just follow that they recommanded for the dilution? You use 1:10 for 
Primary? How about the secondary?
