[Histonet] weak antibody signal

From:"Till, Renee"

We have a BTEB1 goat polyclonal antibody that is staining very weakly
using a Vectastain kit and DAB. I personally like to order my
secondaries and streptavidin separate, that way I can get F(ab')2
fragements or what have you, if I want. I was going to suggest trying
this, as it is has worked better for me on some stains than the Vector
kits. Is there anything else that could be done to boost the signal? I
had thought of CSA kits and the like, but from what I can tell the Dako
kit at least isn't for goat. Would it work better perhaps using
fluorescence instead of DAB?
