RE: [Histonet] c4d

From:"Sebree Linda A."

Hi Gudrun,

For frozen sections we use Biogenesis C4d at 1:600 on our Benchmark XT for 24" with AB block.  We pretreat our acetone fixed sections in VMS Morphosave for 2" but this isn't a critical step and frozens will stain without it.  For paraffin sections, we perform HIER in EDTA in a Biocare decloaking chamber for 3" followed by a 32" incubation and VMS amplification as well as AB block.  We use rejecting kidney as a control as our patient specimens are 95% renal biopsies being tested for possible rejection.

Hope this is of some help,

Dear Richard,
We are going to introduce this antibody in our lab. We work with the Benchmark XT. Can you give me some hints about the titer and incubation time you use? Or what tissue is preferd as a positiv control? Does it work constantly?

Thank you

Could anyone recommend a monoclonal C4d antibody for FFPE human tissue?
