This service includes tissue preparation, sectioning, immunolabeling with various dilutions of the primary antibody, coverslipping and labeling the slides. As a result, you will receive up to 30 immunostained tissue sections ready for microscopic observations. In addition, the experimental procedure used for the antibody titration will be provided.
Procedure: Following cryopretection, tissue will be rapidly frozen in isopentane pre-cooled to -70°C. The frozen tissue will then be cut on a cryostat and mounted on gelatin-coated microscope slides (cf. Products, Cat. #PO101). Subsequently, sections will be processed on slides for immunostaining with the specific antibody at various dilutions according to the avidin-biotin-complex (ABC) method¹ (for photo samples, cf. SI102).
- A quotation is required before placing an order.
- The investigator needs to provide both tissue and the specific antibody.
