Blocking Reagents: The Building Blocks for Clean Staining

To obtain the most specific detection of antigens by IHC, it is essential for all non-specific binding sites be blocked. Antibodies and detection systems used in IHC are mostly protein-based reagents, and so they are susceptible to non-specific protein binding. If these sites are left unblocked, the antibodies and detection system may bind them, leading […]

Buff Up on Buffers and Surfactants

Wash buffers are an integral part of immunohistochemical (IHC) procedures. They are used after each incubation step to wash away excess reagent from the specimen and maintain a constant pH by “soaking up” any free hydrogen (H+) ions. This feature helps maintain the morphological characteristics of antibodies and their epitopes, which enables specific binding. The […]

Biocare Basics: Optimization

Proper optimization is vital for successful immunohistochemical (IHC) testing. An optimal IHC protocol can be characterized by its ability to consistently and unambiguously determine how the antigen is expressed in the tissue. Optimization is fundamental to reducing the risk of both false positive and false negative results.1 The protocol must be able to identify both […]
