A wonderful poster at the NSH symposium/convention in Ft Lauderdale (by 
Mary Payette, et al) showed a comparison of 8 kits.  The top two giving no 
background were DAKO's ARK kit and Biocares MM kit, both based on 
biotinylation of the primary antibody.

One had minimal background, two gave moderate background, and three had 
marked background.  This was a very well designed test of kits.  In our 
experience, kits containing secondary antibodies always gave more 
background, even with all the tidy little special blocks companies put in 
the kits.  We would be using the top two above in the future.
