A Demonstration of CST's Rigorous Validation and Optimization Protocols: How to Combine Two Antibodies on One Tissue


Proper optimization is critical to ensure specific staining, and the combination of multiple antibodies requires they be held to the highest standard of specificity. CST meets this challenge by rigorously validating nearly 1000 antibodies for specific IHC protocols. This app note walks you through CST’s comprehensive validation and optimization process using a dual staining protocol as an example.
