Rich & Andi,
    Rich, I'd like to second Andi's recommendation for Sigma as a source 
for Fast Myosin although we don't bother with HIER. Give it a whirl both 
ways, you never know her's might be better :-)
    Andi, while you asked Rich I figured I'd chime in for Dako as a 
source for Hepatitis (core & surface). Unfortunately I'm out of the lab 
right now so I don't have the cat #s. If  you need them just drop me a 
line and I'll rummage them up.
Good luck guys,

Hi Richard

We successfully use:
- mo-a-Myosin II (fast), clone MY-32, Sigma M 4276, working conc. approx 10 
ug Ig/ml (corresponds to 1:400 with the lot we have), HIER in citrate pH 6.0 
(pressure cooker)
- mo-a-Myosin I (slow), clone NOQ7.5.4D, Sigma M 8421, working conc. approx 
7.5 ug Ig/ml (corresponds to 1:1000 with the lot we have), HIER in citrate 
pH 6.0 (pressure cooker)
Both mAbs work very well (see 
http://www.pathology.unibe.ch/Diagn/speztech/spez_ihc.htm for a pic (german 
website, sorry).

Can you give me a hint in return, where you get your antibodies against 
Hepatitis B surface Ag (HBs) and core Ag (HBc) from? Our source is no longer 
able to supply them, due to some bureaucratic / eurocratic rules, now I'm 
looking for a reliable replacement.
Many thanks in advance!
