I had good collagen I staining with antibody from U of Iowa Hybridoma Bank 
with Pepsin digestion on formic acid decalcified rabbit bones.

We've had good luck with Calbiochem's anti-collagen I (Cat. # CP17L), 1:50
following pronase pre-treatment on rabbit bones.

Hello Histonetters,

Someone in our lab has been trying to stain for collagen I antibody in
rabbit tissue. She's tried the antibody from several different companies
and has used different antigen retrievals, but has been unable to get any
positive staining. The only staining she's gotten is background. These are
paraffin sections. The companies she bought the antibodies from has not
been helpful. She's stained with Collagen type II & III and had no trouble
with these. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you,
