I never used prediluted antibodies. For CD117 I used the concentrated Ab from Dako, diluted 1:50 with HIER at pH6
Try to buy the concentrated Ab.

We are using the Dako c-kit with the predilute antibody. We are staining on
the Dako Autostainer using the Dako Target Retrieval, Envision + detection
kit and DAB+ chromogen. We are experiencing inconsistent staining with the
positive control slide provided with the kit as well as a known positive
tissue control that we use.
Today the positive control slide was negative, the known positive patient
case control slide containing a previously identified GIST was very weakly
positive (however the mast cells were nicely positive).
Any suggestions or helpful hints from my colleagues would be so greatly
