Optibodies - Nordic BioSite

Optimised and well tested antibodies for Immunohistochemistry

Optibodies from Nordic Biosite


You have most likely been using antibodies in Immunohistochemistry for some time and maybe you are getting good results, but Optibodies are on another level.


In producing the Optibodies range we ensure that every antibody provides beautifully optimised staining. This is the key aim of the Optibodies range and any antibody that does not perform to this standard simply does not make it in to the range.


Optibody™ optimisation involves a great number of tests in order to find the optimal staining conditions.


Antigen Retrieval

Each antigen has a preferred method of antigen retrieval such as heat induced epitope retrieval using citrate buffer, as well as an enzymatic retrieval process, but the majority of antigens need alkaline antigen retrieval conditions for truly optimal staining. For this reason, Optibodies are all selected according to the performance in alkaline antigen retrieval.



Antibodies generally have an optimal concentration for use, depending on the affinity of the antibody for its target and expression level of the antigen. Antibodies optimised with tissues expressing high levels of antigen may prove inadequate when staining tissues with low antigen expression. So Optibodies are optimised on a variety of tissue types and antigen expression levels to verify the performance of the Optibody in a range of situations.


Internal and External QC

To ensure the high quality of every Optibody, as well as our own high level of internal quality control, we also take part in external quality assurance programs to ensure our antibodies work optimally in the hands of others too.


Other key criteria

Another key target for each Optibody is specificity and high affinity towards the target. They are also tailored to be flexible and reliable in use, with high consistency between lots and excellent stability.
