I've never worked with MAOB, but what I do when I run into similar
situations is to do a 1:50 and 1:200 dilution in parallel to start getting
a feel for the antibody. (Make sure to use antigen retrieval if you need
it on the FFPE sections; apologies if you already knew that).
Yeah I, too, think it's weird that they illustrate the antibody at a
particular concentration and then tell you they never determined the stock
