Unfortunately Ventana will not give you much help unless it is a Ventana
antibody. I can understand if they offered the antibody and you were using a
competitor but they do not offer the MITF-1. If the majority of users are
requesting help with the same types of third party antibodies(not offered by
Ventana) then it may behoove Ventana (for the full customer service
experience) to offer some suggestion with these antibodies (creating another
job for someone (cough cough)). 
We still are paying for the prep-kit which may cost more than some
antibodies. Just a thought.

It sounds to me from my colleague's comment that she tried contacting
Ventana regarding this, but that they were not of much help.
