Antibody Diluents

The Revival Series of Super Antibody Diluents: DaVinci Green, Monet Blue, Renoir Red and Van Gogh Yellow are optimized formulations for improving antibody titers and are extremely stable for long-term storage. The color-coded Revival diluents were compared to the majority of PBS-based and Tris-based diluents available. In the majority of cases, titers have been improved 2 to 4 times with either DaVinci Green, Monet Blue, Renoir Red or Van Gogh Yellow diluents. Greater dilution of primary antibodies provides higher specificity, thus potentially eliminating false positives.

  • Increase titers
  • Reduce background staining
  • Protease and IgG-free
  • Ready-to-use

Da Vinci Green

A pH 7.3 diluent with protein carrier and preservative. This is an excellent universal diluent.

Renoir Red

Formulated at pH 6.0, Renoir Red is specially designed to work with Tris-based antibodies, rinsing buffers and/or detection systems that use alkaline phosphatase.

Van Gogh Yellow

Formulated at pH 6.0, this diluent uses Assure Technology with pH indicator to signal when a pH change has occurred. A change in pH may reduce staining and is indicated by a pH indicator color change from yellow to green.

Monet Blue

This is a pH 7.9 diluent which also uses Assure Technology with pH indicator. As in the previous diluent, a change in pH results in a color change. A change in diluent color from pale blue to green or yellow indicates that optimal staining may be compromised.

VP Monet Blue

This diluent has been specially formulated to work with Ventana® systems.

Revival Series Sampler

Da Vinci Green, Van Gogh Yellow, Monet Blue and Renoir Red

Revival Series Sampler was designed as a diluent kit to test for optimal staining of primary antibodies. These diluents are specifically formulated to enhance primary antibody staining and may increase titers up to 2 to 4 times.The color-coded Revival Series – Da Vinci Green, Monet Blue ,Van Gogh Yellow and Renoir Red diluents were compared to the majority of PBS-based and Tris-based diluents that are available on the market. In the vast majority of cases, either Da Vinci Green, Monet Blue, Van Gogh Yellow or Renoir Red diluents demonstrated improved staining. These diluents can also be used on an automated staining system.

HPV Diluent

Specially formulated for Biocare’s Broad Spectrum HPV primary antibody, this antibody diluent is optimized to reduce the occurrence of false negatives, high background or changes in staining performance, that are often observed with other types of diluents.

Renaissance Background Reducing

This antibody diluent is specially formulated to reduce the occurrence of nonspecific background with antibodies used in IHC techniques: (Synaptophysin, PLAP, Kappa, and Lambda). We have added potent background-reducing agents to dramatically reduce any unwanted background staining.
