        Subject:        [Histonet] Negative Rabbit Contrl

Does anyone have a source for a good normal rabbit IgG to use for negative 
control immunohistochemical applications?   I have human tissue or human 
cytospins and occassionally my primary antibody is grown in rabbit.  In 
order to run a non immunized rabbit negative control,   I have purchased 
normal rabbit IgG from DAKO, Zymed, Santa Cruz, Lab Visions.  Every one I 
try gives positive staining on the negative slide.  I have done the 
appropriate tests and the staining is not coming from streptaviden, or the 
link anibody, but from the rabbit IgG itself.  I do not have this problem 
with Mouse negative control IgG or goat negative control IgG.   Any 
suggestions, other than not buying any antibodies rasied in rabbit?
