RE: [Histonet] AMACR

The dual stain works great! I've used P504 for quite
some time, and recently worked up the dual stain.
For ours, we use HMW-CK and p63 together (HRP-DAB)
with p504 (AP-Fast Red). 
Two important things about working with p504:
    1) make sure your control has prostate CA, otherwise
you may not get staining.
    2) make sure your slides are not old -- you'll get best
results from slides under 1 month old.

I recently worked up BioCare Medical's antibody P504S(AMACR).  
Our director anticipates it being ordered as a dual stain w/
high molecular weight cytokeratin.  We're still working
on the dual stain.  Let me know if you want more particulars.

Our pathologist here was interested in the following antibody, alpha-methacryl-CoA racemase.  I was wondering in anyone uses this antibody or knows of a vendor for the antibody.
