Yes, there are different subpopulations of rat macrophages.
We were interested in alveolar macrophages, we did see some staining of
fixed macrophages in the connective tissue surrounding bronchi, but I
doubt that it was complete. As is true with human macrophages 'one size
doesn't fit all' -you will need to use several antibodies to stain all
of them. Serotec offers other antibodies in the ED set which should
help.  I have not used these personally, however they are supposed to
perform at similar dilutions and with similar pre-treatment.
