[Histonet] Re: Background on FFPE mouse tissues

From:Aprill Watanabe

I try to use a different primary antibody other than mouse and make sure
that the secondary is not mouse either.  I also use a universal protein
block and a rodent block reagent from Biocare that has shown some promise in
my lab.  I do a lot of work with mouse xenograft tissues so I get high
background with most staining.  These reagent changes for us have made at
least a noticeable difference.
