Good morning all,
I am looking for an antibody for IGF-1 to be used on non-human primate
FFPE tissue sections. I recently purchased an IGF-1R from Imgenex and
tried it on human placenta using 1mM EDTA pH 8.0 (as recommended by the
vendor) but my results were not very satisfactory. Before I give up on
this particular antibody though, I will try a higher pH to see if that
might improve the quality of my staining.  Meanwhile, should someone
know of an antibody for IGF-1 that works well on paraffin sections
Thanking you in advance,
