We use a serum free protein block, many vendors have them we get ours from
Dako.  It makes things a bit easier for us, we no longer need to worry about
which species or detection system we are using the serum free protein block
will work on all of them.

Subject: [Histonet] Choosing a blocking reagent

We have been hotly debating this subject for over a week in our lab.

How do you choose the blocking reagent for immunohistochemistry?

If you are using a secondary made in a donkey can you just use any hoofed
animal's serum to block??
