Hi Gudrun,

We use the Calbiochem antibody Cat No DP02 on the Bond Platform (see below)

We originally compared it to the Novocastra's antibody and found it superior

ANTIGEN NAME:        BK Virus  
OTHER NAMES:         SV40 T Antigen
Clone:	    	 PAb416
Isotype:  	 IgG2a

DESCRIPTION:      Monoclonal antibody to the ~94 kDa SV40 large T antigen.
STORAGE CONDITIONS:        4-8oC undiluted

SUPPLIER:          Calbiochem DP02 

Methodology:        HRP-POLYMER Working Dilution:     		Bond:	1/700 (ER2)
Special Conditions:      EDTA Heat induced epitope retrieval required 
CONTROL TISSUE:     BK Virus Control	 

Inbuilt Controls 		 
In immunocompromised patients, BK can cause a morphologically manifest renal infection with cytopathic signs and functional impairment. In native and transplanted kidneys, BK virus is found in areas of interstitial nephritis.
