Re: Heptatis C Antibody

From:Kappeler Andreas <>

Hi Sharyn

In our hands Novocastra's mo-a-HCV, clone MMM33, stained about the same
proportion of known HCV+ as of control cases ... Similar results with clone
HCV88 (BioGenex), no positive result with clones N57 (HCV NS-3 protein) and
C39 (HCV core protein) (both from Biodesign). Never tried clone Tordji-22 as
a colleague of mine told me - after extensive
testing - that he had never had any success with this antibody - seems to go
well with your own experiences.
About 2 months ago, the subject came up on the Histonet and I encouraged
everybody to come forward with suggestions for a good antibody and protocol.
My mailbox was overflowing ...
