Hi Richard,
We use NCL-PARVO from Leica

Details as follows:

ANTIGEN NAME:        Parvovirus B19
OTHER NAMES:         

Clone:	    R92F6	 
Isotype:  	IgG1  

DESCRIPTION:      Mouse monoclonal to native parvovirus B19 purified from human plasma. Human parvovirus B19 (VP1 and VP2 capsid proteins).
STORAGE CONDITIONS:        4-8oC undiluted

SUPPLIER:            Leica  NCL-PARVO

Methodology:        HRP-POLYMER Working Dilution:     		Bond:	  1/100
Special Conditions:      Citrate HIER required (ER1) 
CONTROL TISSUE:     Placenta containing Parvovirus	 

Inbuilt Controls 	 	 
Diagnosis of parvovirus B19 infection in formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissue can be made through the identification of the characteristic brick-red intranuclear inclusions in normoblasts within the fetal circulation in histological sections stained with HE. It has been found that immunohistochemistry was the best detection method. It is highly specific and sensitive, preserves the morphology and reveals a larger number of positive cells than does HE with the advantage of showing cytoplasmic and nuclear positivity, making it more reliable.
