There are other monoclonal antibodies for macrophages in the mouse, 
generally rat antimouse, try BD Pharmingen.  F4/80 (mature macrophages) is 
another available from Serotec.  You can use a mouse monoclonal on mouse 
tissue, but should use the DAkO ARK kit or Chemicon mouse on mouse kit, 
there are others on the market.  Hopefully, you have a positive control 
expressing the macrophage population you wish to see, this way you can 
optimize your antibody before going to experimental animal.
