Biocare has an IVD predilute that is very good.  (PM153AA)  We use it on
our Benchmark XT.

Subject: [Histonet] C4d question (not CD4)

We have been using an "RUO"-labeled anti-C4d antibody on certain renal
transplant cases for the immunohistochemical detection of humoral
rejection for the past several years.  We have now been asked by our
Transplant team to do this test routinely on all transplant kidney
biopsies (which is another issue).

Is anyone using an "IVD"-labeled antibody for C4d detection by IHC?
Although we get excellent results with this antibody on formalin-fixed,
paraffin-embedded tissue, I would prefer to be using an "IVD"-labeled
antibody (if one exists).  Thanks.
