ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunohistochemistry (frozen/paraffin): 1:10-1:20 No proteolytic treatment required. (Depending on the secondary system used dilution could be 5-10 times higher, but optimal dilution should always be tested by serial dilution).
Optimal dilution to be determined by researcher.
Positive ControlSkeletal and smooth muscle myosarcomas
