RE: Ab to BK virus

From:"Sebree Linda A." <> (by way of histonet)

Hi Heather,

The only source for anti-BK virus I found in Linscott's Directory is
Chemicon but it appears that it is for frozens only.
We have been using an antibody on FFPE tissue that was developed in house
many years ago but we are not at liberty to share unfortunately.  I wish I
had any sort of documentation on the development of our antibody but I
don't.  There may be other sources of "homemade" brew out there; hope you
get some positive responses.
