You can combine the primaries if all of them are from different species.
If they are from the same species you will have to perform the staining
sequentially.  We have some images posted on our web page of
immunofluorescent staining on 50 micron vibratome sections that have
been done by combining the primary and secondary reagents.

fordouble/triple staining

Dear Histonetters,
I have a general question on double or triple fluorescence stainings. 
Jackson Immunoresearch recommends doing sequential stainings, i.e. 
complete staining for antigen A first, then antigen B and then antigen 
C. Is there any danger in mixing up all the primary antibodies in one 
mix instead of using the sequential approach ? And, if using secondary 
antibodies derived from the same species, is there any danger in doing 
the same for the secondaries ?
