Are you looking to stain for firefly luciferase to confirm localization of an optical imaging probe?

That's what I want to do, there are antibodies available from Lifespan and Biovision among others that are purported to work on FFPE sections ....I have yet to try them.

You can check out this article, but they used a UK supplier.

Has anyone had good results staining for luciferase in FFPE tissue? If
so, what antibody did you use.
